XF 1.2 Forum Links have a path doubled in them

    Title doesn't really explain things very well.

    I just moved to a new server, and now my forum sections are not working, because the URL to access them are doubled up, such as

    mywebsite.com/forums/forums/forum-name

    when it should be

    mywebsite.com/forums/forum-name

    Any ideas?

    If you have installed the software in the /forums directory then that is to be expected.

    Install it in the root if you don't want the /forums path in the URL.

    On my old server, it was installed in a forums folder. I have kept the same structure when moving to the new server.

    Every thread will load fine, but the sections which contain the threads wont. Does that make sense?

    Example. I have a section called 'They Foyer' where people post their welcome posts. The link to the most recent post there is

    mywebsite.com/forums/threads/hi.10900/#post-93454

    The link to the section, this post is inside, is

    mywebsite.com/forums/forums/the-foyer.4/

    Which brings up a 404 error page saying "The requested URL /forums/forums/the-foyer.4/ was not found on this server."

    I'm not sure what's gone wrong during the switch as i've not changed anything, and positive i kept the same folder structure.

    If i disable friendly URLS, then the categories work again, the one mentioned above becomes

    mywebsite.com/forums/index.php?forums/the-foyer.4/

    Which loads fine. If i re-enable friendly urls, it goes back to as before and fails.

    Not sure what i need to do to fix it :)
