XF 1.5 Redirect from phpbb to Xenforo


New member
I just did a migration of my forum from phpbb to Xenforo and I'm having trouble getting the individual forum urls to redirect to the new XF page.

phpbb is currently installed in the /forum directory and XF is currently installed in the /community directory.

I'm really only concerned with redirecting my index page and the 4 individual forums. I figured since it's just 5 urls I could make a specific redirect for each one of them, but it only worked with the index page.

Unfortunately I don't know enough about this stuff to figure out why it isn't working or how to make it work.

I was actually just able to get the redirect to work by using one of the scripts you linked to. I had to move my phpbb install into a new directory and then move my XF install into the old phpbb directory (/forum) which isn't exactly what I wanted to do, but it works so I'm going to live with it.

Thank you for your help.
