I have a xenforo install on root at www.xensample.com I want to basically use the main domain for another site and put the forum either on a subdomain or an entirely new url.
The forum has been up for awhile so google has indexed everything neatly and I don't want to screw that up. So how would I go about redirecting only the xenforo content and not the new content I want to put on the site? Or is it not possible?
I take it can be done because any xenforo url is on a /forum /thread and the new site I want to run on the route is a wordpress base thus there will not be any conflicting urls.
Would it work if I just used cpanel and setup a 301 redirect so that
sample.com/forum gets redirected to new.com/forum ?
rinse repeat for /threads and so on?
But then I wonder what about the index page?
Any help would be much appreciated.
