    Soon I will be changing my domain name from http://www.xxxxxxx.com to wwww.yyyyyyy.com. Will this affect my buddypress community in ANY way? Will everyone still retain all of their profile information? Will all of the activity be there? Thanks!

    Any idea? Kind of important.

    Any links in existing activity stream content will still point to the old URL (you’d have to update manually).

    Thanks for the help Paul. That is not so bad, I am mostly concerned about profile information and comments, the social side of it. So that is all safe?

    I think as long as the SQL database is paired/updated correctly, it may work.

    If you’re unsure, try setting up another buddypress install + SQL db on xxxxx.com then move it to yyyyy.com and see if it works before you switch your main site.

    As long as you update the database for WordPress per http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress, other than the activity stream links in BuddyPress breaking as I mentioned above, I think it should work fine.
