Moved Xenforo Directory need redirect.

I move my installation from /forums to / . I tried using the cpanel redirect to send /forums/ to /. That worked to an extent. Since Xenforo's forum urls contain /forums/ ( /community/forums/general-support-and-questions.25/ ) if I clicked on a forum category it would remove the /forums/ in it causing it to become a broken and invalid url. Is it possible to fix this?

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I have already done that. What I did was created a 301 redirect in cpanel to send all requests from /forums/ to / because I moved it. But since the Xenforo URL structure has /forums/ in it for sections, if I clicked on a section the URL should have looked like this /forums/news-announcements.4/ but because of the /forums/ redirect it made it /news-announcements.4/ . Before I moved the directory the URL would have looked like this /forums/forums/news-announcements.4/.

You don't need a redirect, you just have to edit the board url, than move everything over.
I moved mine over as a test and worked just fine.

Perhaps I should have been more specific and said I was talking about links indexed in google. Anyways thanks for help, but I got it working now.
