Change the paths to suit. Note that the path is a file path (it can be relative to the installation path) and the URL is how the data will be loaded by users. These values need to point to corresponding locations.
Hi Mike. I am doing the same thing here for a client. I just want to confirm,
I have copied the data and internal_data folders to a separately mounted storage disk. So if I don't change the config path variables, can I just create two symbolic links inside the xenforo directory for both the data and internal_data folders and be done?
OR... is it better to change the config['internalDataPath'] to the actual path and use symbolic link for $config['externalDataPath'] ?
A symlink should work, but in terms of the paths, you might as well just use the real paths -- there's no real advantage to using the symlink. Note that there's an external data path and URL. The URL is what'll be used. You could expose your external mount with whatever URL you want or you can use a symlink to make it accessible at the default URL.
