  • Moving my forums' location

    Hey
    My forums web addy is www.(myforum).net/forums but I would like it to be www.(myforum).net only.
    How do I move it?

    If the forum is on the same server and host, all you really need to do is backup the files via FTP.

    There is no need for a database backup if it is on the same server. (The username and password for the database should stay the same.)

    In your 'public_html' directory, upload all the files that you backed up from your 'forums' directory.

    You may or may not have to edit config.php, I'm unsure.

    Then:
    Admin CP -> Options -> vBulletin Options -> [General Settings] -> URL and URL of homepage

    Reply with if it worked or not, thanks.
