    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:
    Warning: require(/web/domain.dev/library/XenForo/Autoloader.php) [function.require]: failed to open streamNo such file or directory in /web/domain.dev/index.php on line 8

    I also can't see any obvious tables that hold settings?
    and a
    grep -iR domain\.dev *
    return nothing?

    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
