Moving Servers

I am working on moving my forum to another server.
I have backed up my database and my files.
I have also moved all my files to my new server via ftp. In the same folder structure i had on my old server.
I restored my database in cpanel via back up option.
My problem is i have a new domain that im trying to use after i got all my files moved, on my still live site i logged into admin panel and changed the info to the new url. Then i closed the site.
When i go to the new domain and log in i can log in ok but i can not access the admin panel anymore because it seems to still be using my old domain.

EDIT- When i go to new url and log in everything is fine, when i go to log into admin panel the webpage comes up but my login screen is the default style when i have it set to a blue one. Now when i log in it starts to log in successfully and i get the redirect page. but then it takes me back to log in page like a loop.

Any help is appreciated.

When you hover over the admin link, does it show the proper url, or the old one?

What version of vB4 are you using?

Alright last night i ran into a separate problem so i restarted the process and now when i open the new url it loads fine and the login page loads fine, but when i log into my admin account on the site it gives me that the board is closed message
Any thoughts?

Pm me a admin account and a link to the new site, and I will see what I can do.
