XF 1.1 Errors while moving xf from folder to root


Well-known member
I'm trying to move my xf installation from /content/ to root, but I keep on getting errors. Here's what I did.
  • Update basic board url info.
  • Move files to root.
  • Restart server.

I can view the forum homepage, but I get 500 errors when clicking on a thread or forum. Any suggestions?

Normally that's all you need to do - and even then the server restart isn't always required.

Do you use any form of caching or Cloudflare, etc?

I use xcache but I took all the cache options out of the config.php

check your server error log.
the 500 error should have inserted an error log entry
This is what I get whenever I click on a thread or forum.
