Guys i just shifted my forums to new host and domain name. The processes i did was i first exported database from phpmyadmin and imported it on new host database. Then i uploaded files and edited inc/config.php and inc/settings.php actually my previus installation was on sub forum "yourdomain/forums" now its not on sub forums its main domain. so i changed cookie to "/" only from "/forums/" All the members and posts and shifted sucessfully but when i try to login it logins sucessfully but redirects back to the same page and i am not logged in. "it says logged in sucessfully and then redirects me and then i see that i am not logged in " Help me. my old cookie path was "forums/" now i host it on root folder and no sub folder and so now my cookie path shud be "forums/" or "/".because i just transfered the database at it was.
