    Then move it to the root? I have phpbb running in my root right now and need it to continue untill I get the forum imported.
    Or can you tell me the best way to keep it running?

    What do you mean? Just exactly as you say it... set it all up in a seperate folder, when your happy, import the data then move the files.. job done ;)

    I did precisely this before importing vB4 info into xenForo before putting it live.

    In case you were expecting something difficult like having to update the path in your config files/database before anything worked... well, sorry, you'd be disappointed. It just works :D

    After moving XF to root directory don't forget to change forum path in options -> basic board information
