We're moving our site to a new domain and I am unable to figure out how to move the forum over. Is there a config that need to be changed to point it to the new domain or how can I have to forum show up under the new domain? :roll:
As for things you want to change. Check db.config and app.config for domain specific items that need to be updated. You might have something cookie related in the web.config as well.

The only place I found a trace of the old domain was in the db.config file (as you suggested), changed it to the new URL but no luck. At some point I was able to get a message 'turn off custom messages in web.config' but did not find this file either. The only thing I still see on webhosting under installed apps: Yetanotherforum: Admin URL: 'http://oldDomain/yetanotherforum/' -- where 'oldDomain' is the previous domain. Maybe this path also needs to be changed, but of course they don't give you that option. Maybe I can uninstall this version and reinstall the new one? Would the database be also wiped with a reinstall or can I keep the database with tables, users and topics?
We're still on 1.9.4 at this point, planning to upgrade to the latest once I can get it working on the new site.
I haven't much experience using the webhosting tool of one click install or whatever method they use. I generally just create a new ASP.NET website, use 4.0 Integrated and then upload the install package and run the install wizard.
Create a new website.
Upload the latest version of YAF install files (don't install just yet)
Create a copy your DB
Point your new YAF website to the copied DB
Navigate to newDomain.com/install and test the db connection... if it connects, proceed with installing.
I have NOT done this so I am not 100% saying this will work, but I believe this will update your database and get you on the latest YAF version.
You should be able to copy over your theme/s and you might have to do some tweaking to get it working.
I'll post an update soon as there is progress. Thanks for the help again!
