    Hello,
    I am going to be migrating my current xenforo install to a new server. I was wondering what I need to do, to complete this as hassle and problem free as possible. No change in domain, just a new server. Any help is appreciated. Also, I have the XenForo Enhanced search, with elastic search, so how do I do that? Thank you!

    A server move is basically a backup + restore cross servers:

    Once the move is done then you can update your domain record with your registrar.

    The Enhanced Search addon requires that you install Elasticsearch on the new server. Once that service is installed then the ES addon should work again. You will need to rebuild the index though:

    Admin CP -> Tools -> Rebuild Caches
