    I wish for the CMS portion to be available, and the forum to be located in a directory, is that possible by any means?
    So, you want the CMS to be located at http://yoursite.com/ and your forums to be located at http://www.yoursite.com/forums/? If so, follow the steps in Tevor's post to move your installation to the forums directory, then do the following:

    Copy the contents of the do_not_upload/cms directory to the place where you want to put the CMS. Edit the vb_dir.php file in that directory, and change this:
    PHP Code:
    $vb_dir realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/..');
    //$vb_dir = "/path/to/vbulletin/"; 
    Assuming you are placing the CMS in http://yoursite.com and your forums are located in http://yoursite.com/forums, change it to this:
    PHP Code:
    //$vb_dir = realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/..');
    //$vb_dir = "/path/to/vbulletin/";
    $vb_dir realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/forums'); 
    Afterward, go to the Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details and change the "CMS Component URL" to the URL to your CMS directory, e.g. http://yoursite.com

    Hi Trevor, Ive uploaded my site again, just following your directions. It may seem like a noob question, but where will I find the "forums" directory? I have copied ALL files from the upload folder to the public html folder via filezilla, and I have checked in the admincp to ensure everything you mention above is as
    - update the Forum URL value in AdminCP > Settings > Options > Site Name / URL / Contact Details to http://www.mysite.com/forums
    I just cant find the folder
    - move all vB files to the 'forums' directory
    to drag the files into? Am I supposed to make the forums folder myself in the public html folder? I can take a screen dump and PM it to you if it'll assist. Thanks for your help. (If you can).

    To move your installation to a sub-directory:

    - update the Forum URL value in AdminCP > Settings > Options > Site Name / URL / Contact Details to http://www.mysite.com/forums
    - move all vB files to the 'forums' directory

  • Want forum at www.mysite.com/forums not www.mysite.com

    Hi everyone. I have completed a basic search, but cant seem to find an answer. I'm sure it is something reasonably simple, I would like my forum to be at www.mysite.com/forums, however, when I've uploaded my site and forum, forum takes precedence? Do I install forum into different public file in cpanel? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Mick.
