    System: Debian wheezy, ISPConfig

    We have been developing a CMS website using a development domain and are ready to go live. What is the best way to do this?

    Right now its running on and we need to go live with

    Do I just rename the domain in ISPConfig Admin and save? Or do I create a new domain and copy over the files? Whats the best way? Will renaming even work? Or will it erase all files? Are there any pitfalls?

    Thanks alot for any advice.

    You just rename the domain name in the website settings. Website paths in ispconfig do not contain the domain name (the path is something like /var/www/clients/clien1/web1/), so it does not get altered when you change the domain. The only thing that chnages are the symlinks in /var/www/ that exsit for easier shell navigation.

    If your cms system has stored the domain name in its database (like wordpress), then you have to change it there. But thats not ispconfig dependant.
