  • Moved servers, but unable to turn on Forums.

    ALright I moved servers and everything is fine but before I moved the database I turned off the forums so no one coudl post on them. Now I've tried turning the forums on by giving the vB Active setting '1' and '0'... one or the other should work but it's not.

    My cookies aren't sticking when I log into my admin cp either.

    Run this query to turn your board back on:

    UPDATE template SET template=CONCAT(template,'\n\$bbactive = 1;\n') WHERE title='options';

    As for the login problem, this may be related to the settings you had for 'Cookie Domain' and 'Path to save cookies'. You may need tro update these because of the server move,.

    Personally I recommend leaving the domain blank and the path set to '/'.
