    I installed xenforo on sub domain name be cuz i was about to use site + forum.
    Xenforo is enough for me and i`m about to use only it, but.. I dont wanna reinstall all over again...

    There is a some "Eeasy" way, how can i move forum from sub domain (forum.example.com) to main domain name (www.example.com)?

    Thank you!

    How can I move my installation to a different directory?
    Update the Board URL in the ACP -> Options -> Basic Board Information and move the files to the new directory. You may need to restart the server for the change to take effect.


    How can I move my installation to a different domain or host?
    Backup the existing database and server files. Copy them to the new domain/server and update the library/config.phpfile with the new database details as required. It may be necessary to set permissions for the data and internal_datadirectories to world writeable (CHMOD 0777). Lastly, update the Board URL in the ACP -> Options -> Basic Board Information, if it has changed.
    Note that if you are moving to a different type of web server and have Friendly URLs enabled, you will need to make the appropriate changes. Refer to the Friendly URLs section of the XenForo Manual for more details.
