Hello, I just bought another domain name, and I'm looking to changing my forum url so that it reflects my new domain. Right now it's reading mydomain.com/forum and I would like it to read mynewdomain.com/forum. Can anyone help me with this?

thank you in advanced

What is the forum system that you use? (phpBB2, SMF... ?)

Where it says subdomain manager, go to the www. subdomain and make sure the path points to your new websites folder.

Hey,

Well here is what you do:
1. Add the new domain to your hosting here at 100webspace.
2. Copy and then move all your forum (phpBB) files over to that new domain subfolder in the cPanel.
3. Go to your phpMyAdmin > Go to your forums > and go to your phpbb_config table.
4. Edit your values in there for your domain and folders and such and update it.
5. Go and test your site and see if it works. I bet it will :wink:

If it doesnt, come back here and let me know :D
