I ran the cookie mod and deleted it like it said, I'm not sure if understand what it does though.
Can I move the forum to a different domain and server and still have the mods and everything else running properly. There wont be any thing I need to transfer from the database because the server its on now is just for testing.
the cookie MOD just checks the server and finds out what the best settings are and shows them to you so you can accept them.
you can do the very same thing manually if you have access to the admin panel or to your database. It is just a tool.
often, with a new install, you can't get into the admin panel. the cookie MOD will correct the settings so you can then access the admin panel, or so you can login and stay logged in, etc.
as for moving the forum, sure, it is very easy.
you just copy all your files over to the new one.
then you restore your database backup ,
then you run the cookie MOD so that it will correct all your settings for the new server.
and yes, you will need to move the database over as well. when you install MODs or styles, etc. it changes the database.
