    Default switching hosts configure files

    Hi All,

    I have been working on a test site at a new host. I am going to be switching the dns to point to the new site today.

    I went into the two configure files includes and admin on the new site to reflect the correct urls.

    define('HTTP_SERVER',
    define('HTTPS_SERVER',
    define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER',
    define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER',

    Is there anything else I need to change/do before pointing the dns to the new host?

    Thanks.

    If it's just the DNS that is changing and the cart remains in the same physical location, that should be enough. If you are physically moving the cart, then you would also need to change those config entries that use physical paths on the host machine (e.g. the location of the cache).

    Thanks Kuroi! Yes the cart is staying in the same place and it is installed in the root. So hopefully this works........
