Proper complete way to close my forum down


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

After almost 12 years, i am closing my forum down,

And is simple as it may be, i am not sure on the correct steps to do so.

Any help/advice would be much appreciated.

Is this a self-hosted forum or a IPS cloud forum?  

If it's self hosted...  

  • Make a full backup of your data (just in case!)
  • Remove all of the IPS related files from your website
  • Remove the mySQL database and database user associated with your IPB instance
  • If you're not keeping your license, submit a ticket asking for your license to be set to not be automatically renewed. https://invisioncommunity.com/contact-us/

If it's IPS hosted...

  • Submit a ticket and ask for the service to be ended.  (You might also ask for a copy of the data just in case!)
