    Move the files from /xenforo/upload into /forum

    Then login to your Admin CP and update the URL:

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

    Another question, what am I doing wrong in terms of making home page make? http://castlemc.com/forum/ works fine, but when I click home, members, or the forum itself it leads to a broken page.

    You have friendly URLs enabled but the needed rewrite rules are not working.

    Make sure you rename "htaccess.txt" to ".htaccess"

    Ah I see, I proceeded with that, here is my config: http://pastebin.com/nvC5TJsg Home page, members, and what not still lead to a blank page:

    Not Found
    The requested URL /forum/members/ was not found on this server.

    or

    It works!
    This is the default web page for this server.

    The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

    Alright got it to work, but when I go to the home page it takes me to castlemc.com/forums not castlemc.com. Castlemc.com is still is a broken website and in order for me to use a home webpage I use xenporta but that uses castlemc.com/forums as a website and castle.com/forums/forums as the forums.

    Here is my home page: http://castlemc.com/forums/
    Here is the home page I want: http://castlemc.com

    Should be my last question in a while, appreciate the assistance :)

    It sounds like you mean to move XenForo to the web root instead of a subdirectory. I think that is what you want.

    This is quite difficult. I did that and all works well..except now castlemc.com aka home page states:

    It works!
    This is the default web page for this server.

    The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

    If I turn friendly off home page works fine with the indexphp at the end.

    Ultimately something like this is usually down to a server configuration error.

    What's the current URLs of the site?

    Sorted :) It had something do with my hosts name file.
