Domain changed = Vanilla broken?

edited August 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi all! I was hosting a gaming guild site at http://www.powerwordfunk.com 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, http://www.evinwolverton.com/www_pwf/forum/, but all the forum's internal links are hard-coded to powerwordfunk.com 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 http://www.evinwolverton.com/www_pwf/forum ? 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'] = 'http://www.evinwolverton.com/www_pwf/forum/themes/vanilla/styles/default/'; $Configuration['WEB_ROOT'] = 'http://www.evinwolverton.com/www_pwf/forum/'; $Configuration['BASE_URL'] = 'http://www.evinwolverton.com/www_pwf/forum/'; $Configuration['FORWARD_VALIDATED_USER_URL'] = '/forum/'; $Configuration['SUPPORT_EMAIL'] = '[email protected]'; $Configuration['SUPPORT_NAME'] = 'Evin Wolverton'; $Configuration['APPLICATION_TITLE'] = 'Power Word Funk'; $Configuration['BANNER_TITLE'] = 'Power Word Funk'; $Configuration['COOKIE_DOMAIN'] = 'http://www.evinwolverton.com'; $Configuration['COOKIE_PATH'] = '/www_pwf/forum/';
