Hey there everyone,

I had my domain with a www.(mydomain).dk, and I wanted to change it to forum.(mydomain).dk, I'm unsure if I did it right, because it's not working. I had it working with my old domain, can anybody help me please?

I've not changed the cookie domain, because it's the same. (.(mydomain).dk) and I changed my domain in the inc/settings.php to forum.(mydomain).dk. I did this on the configuration page on mybb too in "site details" I did as in the inc/settings.php file and changed the domain, but did not change the cookie domain.

I've also changed the domain from www.(mydomain).dk to forums.(mydomain).dk on my domain host (UnoEuro)

What shall I do? Shall I just wait? Right now the page kind of works, because the webhost I use (000webhost) says that the page is ready for use;

Thanks anyways, L Moody.

Hey .m.

I'm not trying to make the domain after the trailing slash. I'm trying to change the www. To forum. so that it's another domain completely. I'm not sure if I've done it right or anything.

As I'm not home I'm unable to change anything, I'll try later today though. Crossed fingers for this working.


Hey there. I've fixed my issue. Thanks for your support.
