Hello
I want to migrate a forum to our server but on the same domain, same location of files etc... How to do what data has changed?

Is there also data to update in the database if nothing changes the domain the same location of the ip the same just the server.

Thank you for your help.

If anything changes, then you have to update the settings. (get and run repair_settings.php)

but I'm not sure I understand your comments above.
If you are changing servers, then the paths, if not the URLs will probably change.

Do I find the get and run repair_settings.php?

Do you also have a tutorial for a migration which folder I have to change to enter the new database logins?

I want to go to 2.1.3 but above all I must not lose the content of my images in attachments and my themes.
Irisado would you be able to provide free help just to start the upgrade process without losing my current attachment files and the rest

Most of your themes won't work with 2.1.3 ...
