Domain changed = Vanilla broken?

edited August 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi all! I was hosting a gaming guild site at with a Vanilla forum. I then transferred the domain to a friend and the deal went through before I was able to properly export the forum or otherwise prepare it for changes. The files of the forum are still hosted at my parent domain,, but all the forum's internal links are hard-coded to urls, which only result in errors, since they don't lead to actual pages on that new server. Is there anything I can do to recover my forum at ? Thanks in advance, Evin

    There is a Web-path to Vanilla item in the settings page.

    Oops I guess you can't reach it...

    Then try to change $Configuration['BASE_URL'] in conf/settings.php.

    Okay, I have access to that page. However, I don't know which urls should be absolute and which should be directories. So I messed with them all, and while I can now see the forum, it doesn't ever acknowledge (store?) my login. Here's my settings.php right now: <?php // Application Settings $Configuration['SETUP_TEST'] = '1'; $Configuration['APPLICATION_PATH'] = '/homepages/13/d201128006/htdocs/www_pwf/forum/'; $Configuration['DATABASE_PATH'] = '/homepages/13/d201128006/htdocs/www_pwf/forum/conf/database.php'; $Configuration['LIBRARY_PATH'] = '/homepages/13/d201128006/htdocs/www_pwf/forum/library/'; $Configuration['EXTENSIONS_PATH'] = '/homepages/13/d201128006/htdocs/www_pwf/forum/extensions/'; $Configuration['LANGUAGES_PATH'] = '/homepages/13/d201128006/htdocs/www_pwf/forum/languages/'; $Configuration['THEME_PATH'] = '/homepages/13/d201128006/htdocs/www_pwf/forum/themes/vanilla/'; $Configuration['DEFAULT_STYLE'] = ''; $Configuration['WEB_ROOT'] = ''; $Configuration['BASE_URL'] = ''; $Configuration['FORWARD_VALIDATED_USER_URL'] = '/forum/'; $Configuration['SUPPORT_EMAIL'] = ''; $Configuration['SUPPORT_NAME'] = 'Evin Wolverton'; $Configuration['APPLICATION_TITLE'] = 'Power Word Funk'; $Configuration['BANNER_TITLE'] = 'Power Word Funk'; $Configuration['COOKIE_DOMAIN'] = ''; $Configuration['COOKIE_PATH'] = '/www_pwf/forum/';
