Renaming instance

#1

Has anyone successfully renamed an instance? I’d like to change the domain for my instance and move from a .social to a .net, and I’m wondering what’s involved, which conf files to edit, etc.

It’s a new instance with 4 people on it and even fewer posts, and I’m not worried about broken links. Running Mastodon 2.5.0 manual (no Docker) on Ubuntu LTS 18.04.

You cant really change the domain as it messes up with the network, other server will see you as new instance. There is alot of talk already has been doen regarding this.
