    I just removed Xenporta today and I had it up for a couple months, but whats the best way to redirect this url as it was setup like this below..

    myforum.com - xenporta
    myforum.com/forum - forum home

    Now that I disabled Xenporta the myforum.com/forum doesnt redirect to myforum.com

    So whats the best way I should redirect this /forum to myforum.com ?

    This addon will work:


    You would use this mapping:

    forum -> index

    Or you can add a rewriterule to your .htaccess file:

    #	Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
    #	cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
    #<IfModule mod_security.c>
    #	SecFilterEngine Off
    #	SecFilterScanPOST Off
    ErrorDocument 401 default
    ErrorDocument 403 default
    ErrorDocument 404 default
    ErrorDocument 500 default
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    	RewriteEngine On
    	RewriteRule ^forum/$ http://www.yoursite.com/ [R=301,L]
    	#	If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
    	#	line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
    	#	of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
    	#RewriteBase /xenforo
    	#	This line may be needed to enable WebDAV editing with PHP as a CGI.
    	#RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
    	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
    	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    	RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
    	RewriteRule ^(data/|js/|styles/|install/|favicon\.ico|crossdomain\.xml|robots\.txt) - [NC,L]
    	RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]
