    is there any special process or steps i need to take in order to move xen from one folder to another on my site?

    ex i have /public_html/private_dev_forum/ and i'm moving it to /public_html/

    is this going to cause any issues and if so what are they and how do i fix them to shorten the downtime?

    On the same server? Easy.

    1) Move the files to the new location.

    2) Update this setting:

    Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Basic Board Information -> Board URL

    thank you
    I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't break anything by changing the folder path

    much appreciated!

    What about if we need to move to a different server?

    Does the same simplicity apply - obviously I can update the config.php with new database details.
