    Ok so after trying to install this myself and failing 4-5 times I finally contacted my hosting company bluehost. I explained to them what I was trying to do and the told me I needed to do this:

    # BlueHost.com
    # .htaccess main domain to subdirectory redirect
    # Do not change this line.
    RewriteEngine on
    # Change example.com to be your main domain.
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?duhlife.org$
    # Change 'subdirectory' to be the directory you will use for your main domain.
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/community/
    # Don't change the following two lines.
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    # Change 'subdirectory' to be the directory you will use for your main domain.
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /community/$1
    # Change example.com to be your main domain again.
    # Change 'subdirectory' to be the directory you will use for your main domain
    # followed by / then the main file for your site, index.php, index.html, etc.
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?duhlife.org$
    RewriteRule ^(/)?$ community/index.php [L]

    Which worked in pulling the forum up on my test site url duhlife.org.

    So I guess my questions are did I install it (Xenporta) in the wrong spot? If so where do I install the Xenporta files? In searching the forum it says to place them in a folder with "root" on the end but I could not find any folders/files with root in them...

    Root is generally / or in the case of having a public folder something like /public_html if your a windows user your familiar with root as c:\ in Linux its /

    After the files are up install the XML file which is knowing jaxel hidden somewhere one ore two folders in in a folder called XML.

    You need to ask in the XenPorta resource discussion thread.

    Normally I'd say that but he is asking where is root. Turned it more into how to install an add-on. For which this is where to ask anyway... Err edit well not quite but not bad? Lmao
