XF 1.5 Forum link keeps going wrong everyday.

Hi all,

Im having a strange problem that I can nail down and was hoping for some help.

On my forum Navigation bar I have the standard forums link, that works normal. However every morning When I or posters click on that clink instead of going to my forum categories it goes to a webpage that shows the writing Parent Directory, naturally if you click on this it returns you to the index page of my site.

Checking my host, it appears that a folder called Forums has been created, deleting this folder solves the problem, however the next day the folder returns and the problem starts again!

Any idea why and how this folder is being created?

I do not think that folders can be self created. Can your host check their logs for any clues as to how they are being created automatically?

What is your forum url? Can you please post it here?
I think I found the problem, I had a subdomain called forums, even though I had deleted the folder I think the subdomain was being created everyday by the system where my site is hosted.

deleted the subsdomain now so hopefully that's the end of my problem!

Thanks for the the help Wang, hopefully its all sorted now!
