XF 1.1 Moving installation directories to root

Hey guys, I'm planning on moving my site from a /forums directory to the root of the website. I currently have a wordpress site on the root and will be ditching that and replacing it with my forums. Just wondering what the process would be to do this, or is it as easy as moving all the xenforo files? Also is there anything I should do in the form of re-directs in my htaccess for google? I have no experience with that so examples would be greatly appreciated.
