How to move Forum to Subdomain?

#1
I've been searching for days, and the avaialble threads don't seem to answer everything that is needed to make the switch.

Right now my Board URL is http://www.selectbutton.com/forums

I want it to be http://forums.selectbutton.com

The reason for this is because when viewing the forum list it has forums/forums/

I have the subdomain already setup with my host, but when I try changing the Board URL under options to the subdomain, it doesn't do anything and continues to load at http://www.selectbutton.com/forums

The board URL is primarily for links in emails and the logo.

Which URL are you loading in your browser?

As I mentioned I already have a subdomain created with my host. Not sure how to move the server files over as the "forums" folder is already in my base directory.
