  • Transfer forum to new server.

    I'm thinking about moving my complete site to a new webhost.

    Will this mean a lot of work just to get the forum up and running on the new server?

    How about if the webhost uses a different system for naming the database?
    Ie.
    my current is:
    pyds_database
    and the new is
    database_pyd
    (totally fictional names )

    It's not that much of a problem. If the database name or login details change you'll want to update the config.php file, but that's all there is to it.

    You can find full details on moving servers here: http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/moving_servers

      well i've had some experience with that and also, it will be easier if you have SSH access on both boxes(my slang for hosting) because it will be secure but if it doesn't have, you can still do it manually without much problems
