Moving existing Oxwall to different URL same provider[Solved] | Forum

John Mar 5 '13
I have been attempting to figure out how to move my existing oxwall site and content to a different url (but still under the same service provider).  Currently I just have the site redirect to the old url, but would like to make it so it's just under the new url I have purchased.  I attempted to copy files over, but that did not quite work.  Although some content showed up, it certainly wasn't right (I'm assuming has something to do with the sql database).

John, all you need is to indicate correct URL in the /ow_includes/config.php file and give your site some time to renew existing content from the Newsfeed as old links won't work properly after you change the URL.

can you help me? I created a sub-domain and need the site form the main domain to the new sub-domain. Can you tell me if I have to work with the database?

No need to do anything with the database, just move the file to the subfolder and change URL in define('OW_URL_HOME', 'http://site.com/subdomain/'); //new site URL
