Right so I

did the steps to switch forums.

I didn't edit the

./inc/settings.php

Because I want to stay on my current domain I went back on my forum everything is fine, but I can't tell if it switched hosts is there away of testing?
Try to log in and log out if you have issues then you need to edit settings!
Also if you don't change your URL then website will look broken images css will not load!
now i get this [Image: be792820f21fc73deea35098882b2a97.png]
if you have switched hosting the you will also need to connect your forum to the new database.
Edit config.php

$config['database']['type'] = 'mysqli';
$config['database']['database'] = 'EDIT';
$config['database']['table_prefix'] = 'mybb_';

$config['database']['hostname'] = 'EDIT';
$config['database']['username'] = 'EDIT';
$config['database']['password'] = 'EDIT';

Whats your URL?

You have to update config and settings files with your new hosting data and then upload those files to your new hosting!

edited Config.php then uploaded my directory to the new forums FTP (Filezilla)
