    Hey folks. I purchased XenForo last evening, and I'm installing today. Our old forum root directory is "forums", and I'm looking for suggestions on new names. As if now, it's "community", but I thought I'd throw it out for input. Any thoughts?

    Thank you.

    I use "community".

    You could of course just put Xenforo in your root rather than a sub directory, unless there's a reason not to?

    If I did that, would the forums be accessible at xDebate.com with out the redirect I've put into place?

    Are there any DOWNSIDES to putting in the root directory?

    If you aren't running a CMS/Wiki in your root already, then really none (unless you later decide you want install a standalone Wiki/CMS in your root and bridge it to xenForo).
    All 3 of my forums run in the root of their nginx container for their respective domain.

    I recently moved my forum into document root after running it in /forum since 2006! There was nothing in there except an index.php which redirected to /forum anyway

    Installed in the root directory. Thank you.

    I use on the root as well, but inside of a folder call mysite.com, because I have more than one domain in one host :)
