    You will need to edit your ‘config.php’ file.

    Is that it? I am actually working with both WordPress and bbPress integrated. There is quite alot of work that needs to be done WP on the database side ( http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL ) , so I was figuring something similar would need to be done for bbPress. Although, they are sharing a database, not sure if that makes a difference. Any other thoughts?

    I cannot think of anything you’d have to do besides re-edit your config.php unless you’ve hardcoded your domain into any custom templates.

    Wow… thats not so bad then. After reading what I have to do in WP I was a bit intimidated. I will be sure to back everything up and give it a go by mid next week.

    Thanks for the info.

    Changing domain for WP isn’t as bad as you think Orion. Just the options table in the database more than anything will give you access to change the rest! wp_options

    Going along with what Trent said, I usually follow Podz’s guide for it:

    Wow! Thanks a lot spencerp. As a visual person, a visual tutorial is priceless.

    I am in love with WordPress and bbPress. I was originally thinking of going with phpbb, but man, this bbPress is so sleek, so easy to customize, and has so much potential.

    Thanks again,

    Orion

    You’re welcome Startribe.. :) ;)
