Question about Installing, Sub domain and XenPorta

#1
Hi there, I'm new here and new to XenForo. I need some help and suggestion. I would like to know if I should install it on my /forum/ folder? and make it a sub domain like forum.mysite.com How can I do so?

Also, How can I make XenPorta as my main page? For example, mysite.com will be XenPorta? and forum will be forum.mysite.com

Thanks,

Ken

For the configuration your suggesting, I'd recommend having your main site as http://mysite.com and your forum being http://mysite.com/forum.

If you did want a sub-domain then you would have to configure that through your hosting account such as through cPanel or Plesk... but to me it just makes sense to have www.mysite.com and www.mysite.com/forum.

Once you have XenPorta installed there is an option to set the Portal as your Index controller. This basically means that www.mysite.com will take you to XenPorta and www.mysite.com/forums will take you to the forums.

I've installed on folder /forums/ however the XenPorta is not working right. Home is /forums/ and forum link is /forums/forum

I've set it to Set as Index Controller

I got it. So there is no way for me to do what i want? forums as sub domain? The default forum will be moved to /forum. can I rename it to forums instead?

As I say, it will be a server configuration rather than XenForo. So either configure it through your webhosting Control Panel or contact your hosting provider.
