Change Of Domain Name

Hello Everyone,

I need to have dolphin work for me at a new domain name.  It was already installed with my provider Arivxe under the domain http://www.worldwarusaalliance.com but now I registered http://www.worldwargamingcommunity.com  and I want dolpin to work with the new domain.  Same host provider just different domain name. What files need to be modified so that this will work?  Please advise.

 

Thank you,

 

Jeff

 

If the host has pointed the domain to the same folder the site is currently in, then edit inc/header_inc.php and change this line.

$site['url']               = "http://your_new_domain.com/";

Then you need to manually empty the contents of the folders cache, cache_public and tmp except for any .htaccess files in those folders.

Hi Deano92964,

 

Just so I understand you and don't mess things up.  I should manually empty all files in the following folders:

cache, cache_public, and tmp but do not delete any .htaccess files that are found in the folders.  Is this correct?

 

Thank you,
