Checklist for changing domains.

We have decided on a new domain name for the forum so will need to shift to another sub-directory on the same shared server. So, all I need to do are:

1. Rename the directory from XX to YY
2. Rename directory YY to XX
3. Change domain name in ACP board options.
4. Change domain name in Xenforo user details.

Or is it not as simple as this?

Looks good to me.

Since it's on the same server you can use the same database, so moving the files and updating the settings is all that is needed.
