changing name of directory

This might be a stupid question but I'm asking anyway lol. If we wanted to change the name of the directory where we have our xf forum (we currently have it at ourdomain.com/xen but want to change it to ourdomain.com/community) can we literally just rename that directory from "xen" to "community" or is there anything else we'd need to do?

You also need to change the URL:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Basic Board Information -> Board URL

In addition, some people report PHP errors after changing the directory. I think it has to do with server caching. Restarting the server usually fixes that.
