Changing start page

I'm new to coding and web design. Where or what file do I need to modify to make my domain/forum the start/main/landing page?...(It's not currently my start page as something got screwed up.)

You can also move the forum itself if there is nothing else in the web root.

1) Move the files from /forum to /.

2) Update the URL:

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

Thanks easy to setup but that weirdly doesn't work for me. My start page is having a really bad day. I cannot win....arg
As I said in your other thread, whatever changes you made as part of the portal add-on are more than likely responsible.

You will need to reverse those.

I made no changes. I just checked a box in Xenporta it has worked fine for months since checking box....then I upgraded to Xenforo 1.1.2 Which now gives me a blank page when I go to www.mydomain.com. Changing the basic board info as above mentioned or doing a 301 redirect does nothing. Neither does disabling or unchecking check boxes. I really don't think this is a Xenporta issue

oddly linking to an unanswered question doesn't aid in resolving issue...and others have reported problem as noted in my original post under install issues

Does the problem go away when you disable XenPorta?

XenPorta has an option to change the route for the index page to allow the portal to occupy the index. Maybe this is something to do with that option.
