Help Me to move all files to my own domain at frihost





niranvv
Hi,
Im using Direct admin at server 2!
Im using frihost and my site address is: www.niran.frih.net

I got my personal domain name www.niranvv.com and till now I'm using that as a domain forwarder to my frihost address!

I need to host my domain niranvv.com completely at frihost.com
that is need to transfer all contents from niran.frih.net to niranvv.com at frihost.com

The problem is that , I have one forum which is located at: http://niran.frih.net/forum
If I move the whole directory to the new domain, will it work?
I mean, I need to transfer the whole forum contents without losing the already registered members to: niranvv.com/forum
Please clarify my doubts!

The memebrs are stored in the database not in files so they and all other stored data will remain intact. You may however need to change the url and path names of your forum in a config file (usually called config.php or settings.php etc).

The contents of the config.php file is here:
Code:

<?php
// phpBB 2.x auto-generated config file
// Do not change anything in this file!

$dbms = 'mysql4';

$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbname = 'niranvv_forum';
$dbuser = 'niranvv_admin';
$dbpasswd = 'MyPassword';

$table_prefix = 'phpbb_';

define('PHPBB_INSTALLED', true);

?>


here I can't find any URL!! Crying or Very sad
What to change here dude? Shocked
niranvv
Its working fine now!!
Just copied config.php to the new directory!
No problem for the connection because both domains are hosted at same server! Dancing
So forum now available at: www.forum.niranvv.com


Thanks Dude!

thats simple dude!

Goto forum (present Server) administration page,
from there export the forum database to your system!

goto: yourname.frih.net/phpmyadmin page
upload the exported database there!

just copy all forum folder contents to your frihost server!
then edit the config.php in your frihost server!

(Edit the dbhost value!!
For frihost, its localhost only)

Thats all friend!
Try this one!
dont forget to set the permission of avatar gallery folder to "777"
