  • A little help needed please (changing domain names)

    Ok I've searched through the threads and read what I could about just changing domain names.

    I still have a few question, my board is modded and I want to change the name what files would I have to upddate and what are some of the steps I would have to do to get everything working right?

    Thanks in advance for any help

    vBulletin uses relative paths for almost all links. You only need to change your forum URL in your:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details -> Forum URL

      Thanks for replying

      So I shouldnt have to worry about anything else? When I change those it will update my attachments and everything with no problem?

      I just want to make sure before I shut down the board to do this so I have as least amount of down time as possible.

        As long as you ddid not hard-code any templates or files with the domain you should be fine.
