Moving mybb from another subdomain to a TLD

Had to move it from droidzone.in/romforum to droid-force.com (Thanks, c0urier)

First, was the copying stuff-everything to the right place

Next, backup sql database from mybb

Create a new SQL database on new server

Import old SQL-I was using mybb 1.6 and the database had to be imported in compatibility mode for SQL 4.5

Next, modify the database properties in the file inc/config.php

Next, adjust cookie settings in file
$settings[‘cookiedomain’] = “.newdomain.com”
$settings[‘cookiepath’] = “/”
$settings[‘bbname’] = “Droidzone Forum”
$settings[‘bburl’] = “newdomain.com”

Adjust settings.php to mode 666
