Re: How to move a forum?
Those plugins come default for 1.0alpha2 under the plugins tab, you have to turn them on. I suspect it’s POSSIBLE if you downloaded the alpha version, they might work in a non-alpha install, but it’s untested.
But really, if you’re just moving your domain, you can pretty much do what you’d do for WordPress or any other PHP/SQL driven site. You have two basic options.
- Download a copy of the main bbpress files from your OLD server to your hard drive and edit wp-config.php to suit the new server.
- Go back to your OLD forum and go to options and change the url (both of them) to that of your new site.
- Download your database (but keep the old one just in case), upload this new database and the copy of the wordpress core files with the edited bb-config.php to your NEW server.
- Install a new forum on the new server.
- Export the forum content from the OLD server into a BBXF file
- Import the data into the new forum.
