New domain : database problem

Post by shiner » Tue Jul 22, 2008 3:23 pm

We just moved to new domain and uploaded backup file into it. I believe I have to put new domain information somewhere in the database. Unfortunately I forget where.
Please help.

Just run the cookie fixer. It will sort all of that out for you.

Thanks Kevin Clark. But the real problem is, when I try to login, I am redirected to my old domain.

Did you run the cookie fixer?
You don't need to be logged in to run it.

What I meant is, my board url is www.new-domain.com/forum but when I enter my user id, password and press Login button, I am redirected to
http://www.OLD-domain.com/forum/index.p ... df4f5f73d0

The starfox admin toolkit linked in my sig will allow you to re-enable the board. It's a 1 file upload.
