is it possible to move my forum to another domain (same host ) but have my database still on the old domain? and if so are there any members of staff who do this sort of thing for pay?

Create new mySQL database with your new domain name and gather all information. Open your FTP then makes a folder name with your new Domain name & inside that folder create another folder with a name of WEB-INF << inside of that folder another folder make 2 separate & name it “classes” & ‘lib” after that throw all your files inside you DOMAIN.COM folder now you can see on that folder your phpBB3 (existing forum folder) & WEB-INF. Then edit your config.php with your new database info and your set. This is only a summary explanation.

How can you move your existing forum to new domain name without creating new mySQL database? I have 2 phpBB3 forum with separate database... maybe I can learn something from you without creating another mySQL database & use existing database to move my old/existing forum just incase :roll:

In addition to this... if you have a shared hosting server like GoDaddy.com with 3-10 domain name how can you put it all in your web hosting server? ofcourse you need to create a folder for each domain name.
