    Good evening,

    I just finished installing my new xenforo software per http://xenforo.com/community/threads/installation-guide.8102/. The problem I am having is when I put in the url i get the following;

    Index of /

    Apache/2.2.17 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.17 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/ Server at www.wrxmodforums.com Port 8

    How do I get my forum to show up using just the regular URL instead of having to add /community to the end?

    just delete everything and install the forum into the first level (where cgi-bin is...).

    If you want the forum home page to load just by entering the main domain URL and you have installed in the root then add this to your root .htaccess file:

    DirectoryIndex index.php

    Lu Kas,

    I did what you recommended and now I get the following error message

    Warning: require(/home/wrxmod/public_html/library/XenForo/Autoloader.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/wrxmod/public_html/install/index.php on line 7

    Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/wrxmod/public_html/library/XenForo/Autoloader.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/wrxmod/public_html/install/index.php on line 7

    You seem to be missing the install directory and/or the index.php file in that directory.

    Where do you want to install your forum - in the root or in a sub-directory as it is here, e.g. /community?

    i guess that is how it should work unless there is a home screen it should default to

    You are missing some files. You need to re-upload all of the files to the new location.

    You are missing the internal_data directory and possibly other things. I've not checked with the latest release regarding what is not included with the upgrade only package, but you may need to re-download your software from xf.com. There is an upgrade and full version available, be sure to get the full version.

    It had worked originally, except as shown in my original post. where the only way i could see the site was to type in www.mydomain.com/community.

    As I posted above, you need to add a line to your .htaccess and/or set up a redirect to the index.php file.

    With nothing in the root (and listing enabled), the browser will just display the contents of the directory.

    this may seem like a dumb question, but during installation what do most people click at this point?

    Remove all XenForo-related data, including posts and users

    Something was missing. The auto install seems to be working now just curious about the " Remove all XenForo-related data, including posts and users" question during install.

    Glad to hear it.

    Don't hesitate to post back for any further questions or problems.

    That's because the database already exists from your first installation attempt.
    If you want to do a completely new install you can just drop the tables from the DB but there's no need to do so.

    just the question about how most people approach " Remove all XenForo-related data, including posts and users" during installation

    I edited my post above to answer that.
