Need assistant moving directory


Well-known member
Hi all. Haven't touched my forum for quite a long time...

Currently my Xenforo is installed in the home directory

With Xenporta installed, the actual forum is access via address
It's not an actual directory, it's all Xenporta's doing.

Now, I want to remove Xenporta and move the forum into an actual directory.
At the end the forum should still be accessed via the same URL:

What steps would I need to take to make that happen? Thanks :)

Uninstall xenporta.

Move the files to the /forum directory.

Update the Board URL in the ACP.

You may want to implement some sort of redirect from the domain root.

You may also need rewrites, depending on how the URLs are now compared to how they will be after the move.

Take a backup first.
