changing domain names etc

#1
Ok .. after having asked 3 pre sales question, I just busted out my credit card :)

so now my first post sales question (without putting any thought or investigation whatsoever ;) )
How do I go about changing domain names and what-not for an install?

I want to set the forum up on dev.domain.co.nz .. and when I'm finished go live to www.domain.co.nz, in the process I will also change the path on my host from /path/to/domain.dev/ to /path/to/domain/

Wish me luck ;) .. I'm a long time IPB admin/owner ( http://mandrivausers.org )

Changing the install path is very simple.

Just move the files to the new directory and update ACP -> Options -> Basic Board Information: Board URL

uploaded files into /web/domain.dev/
completed the install.

Then moved the files /web/domain.dev/forums/
now I get a php error:
PHP:
Warning: require(/web/domain.dev/library/XenForo/Autoloader.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /web/domain.dev/index.php on line 8

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/web/domain.dev/library/XenForo/Autoloader.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /web/domain.dev/index.php on line 8

It seems to indicate that some files are missing.

Does Autoloader.php exist in /web/domain.dev/forums/library/XenForo ?

sure does, but the error is that /web/domain.dev/library/XenForo (notice it is still looking in the original directory where I installed) doesn't exist.

wow .. fixed it ... how does xf handle caching?

restarted apache and everything works . .could be apc.php getting in the way? or memcache (if xf uses memcache by default)

anyways .. :) thanks
