# Migration guides

# From 4.x to 5.x

BaseURL options and handling have been completely rewritten.

Please refer to the latest docs.

Default prefix is now / instead of /api.

You have to explicitly add /api/ in all requests.

credentials is now disabled by default.

For using old defaults:

{
  axios: {
    prefix: '/api',
    credentials: true
  }
}

Default error interceptor removed

All lifecycle functions removed

You can now easily use a plugin to extend axios and add your custom logic there.

Please see Extending Axios section in docs.
