  • Changing domain

    Hello!

    I will migrate an existing forum to vBulletin.
    So, my plan is using a new domain for vBulletin while I am working on the migration, then (after the migration is finished) I set the old forum in a second new address and set vBulletin in the main domain.

    Question: does that change works out of the box for vBulletin 5? Should I change the domain/schema in any table?

    Example:
    this is the current state
    www.myforum.com -> old forum

    then I create a new domain
    www.myforum.com -> old forum
    www.newmyforum.com -> vBulletin 5

    after the migration is finished, I switch addresses
    www.oldforum.com -> old forum
    www.myforum.com -> vBulletin 5

    vBulletin has a guide on migrating servers Not sure if that helps.

      Thanks for the reply, but unfortunately I didn't find what I was looking for in that link, however, I succeeded.

      In the control panel (admincp), one must go to "Settings -> Options -> Site Name / Url / Contact Details", then edit the values "vBulletin URL", "Login URL", "Core Url".
