  • Install to an IP address before domain name propagates?

    Hi everyone, quick question. I'm setting up a new site (for someone else, not me, my site's fine) and until the content is ready we're just using the IP address to hit it. Can I install VB on this IP address, or will the installer fail because it's not pointing to the domain we have on file?

    Thank you.

    You can install using an IP address.

      Thank you Steve. Once we get the domain moved, do I have to do anything special?

        You will need to update the forum URL in the Admin CP and Members Area.
