we are close to the launch of our new S2member site. We have the single site license and I have a few questions.

We been using the plugin to build the site, but everything right now is on a different domain……..which has been our development domain. When we switch everything over to the actual domain (which will be, what are the necessary steps to make sure that all of our settings are the same in the plugin? Since it’s a single site license, will there be any issues changing the domain that the plugin in working in?

Please advice how you would do it.

Hi Cheryl,

First, you should backup your entire WordPress database before such a move just in case anything goes wrong.

As far as plugin settings, all of those are stored in the WordPress database. As long as the WordPress database is copied over to the new site, you should have no problem. Just make sure s2Member Deactivation Safeguards are enabled (Dashboard -› s2Member® -› General Options -› Deactivation Safeguards).

Once things are moved over, you’ll want to make sure the URLs on PayPal’s side are configured properly to point to s2Member on the new domain (IPN Configuration, PDT/Auto-Return Integration, etc.: Dashboard -› s2Member® -› PayPal® Options). This is also a good time to double-check the rest of your PayPal configuration (API keys, access tokens, etc.).

As far as your s2Member license, we ask that you please update the domain associated with your license. You can do this by logging into, editing your profile, and updating the Primary Domain.
