Full Version: Changed hosts/domain

So, me being me, I jumped right in, changed my domain, changed hosting and pretty much left the old domain with nothing. Nor did I read anything about how would I properly change hosts without breaking the forum itself, and so I broke it.

I got the database copy, luckily that. I also got the whole public_html. So I decided to upload the whole public_html to my new host. That just broke everything and my site was with weird signs (index).
Oh and also ofc I changed the database settings, cookie domain etc.

After that I decided to install the default MyBB again and on top of that the old one, which... kinda worked.
As in, I heavily modified the theme, but it only reads the theme as it was originally. I'm pretty sure that's to do with the theme cache.

So currently I have a choice of using the original theme, which I would have to modify again. Which is way too much work.

The actual problem: How do I copy over the theme with proper theme cache? (css etc.)

If anyone can help me, thanks a lot. Could save a lot of work.

Still haven't found a fix :c
You can export the theme in ACP, import it to the new host and run ACP -> Tools & Maintenance -> Task Manager -> Stylesheet Re-Cache task by pressing the clock icon next to it (do only this if the CSS is correct in ACP already).

Sorry, I wasn't on at that moment. I'll send you the info and you can check it out for yourself, whenever you have time.
Thanks!
