Here's the list of Nginx rewrite rules I used on a forum that I converted from Simple Machines Forum (SMF) to Xenforo.
- Compatible XF Versions:
- Additional Requirements:
- Nginx (I used the excellent Centminmod script to install Nginx/PHP/MariaDB)
When first using these, I strongly recommend testing all the rewrites as 302's rather than 301's until you're sure you've got it right. Otherwise your browser will cache the 301, which may or may not be possible to reset...
