Okay so I changed my domain name and now I can't access my site outside of my home network , I made the nessesery changes in settings.php , and both config files and updated the IP address and a new ssl certificate for that domain name but still can't access it outside my home network ?? What am I missing

SMF has a repair settings file available on their website.
It makes necessary database changes for url's and paths.
You need to get that file, make the changes, save the settings and then delete the repair file.

Whenever you move your site or change domains you'll need to use repair_settings.php:
