    I've been trying to put the CMS in my root and all I get is a blank page. I started a thread a few days ago but no one has answered.

    I am following these directions:

    https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/...insubdirectory

    I did these things:

    1) I uploaded files to root
    2) mod-rewrite: not using this.
    3) Changed settings in Options > Site Name / URL / Contact Details. I set the CMS dir to httP://localhost
    4) Checked cookie directory. It was the root like it should be.
    5) I edited vb_dir.php in the do_not_upload/CMS dir that is copied to the root (These directions are MISSING from the documentation linked above).

    I'm guessing the problem is in the vb_dir.php file. My forum is localhost/forum so I set $vb_dir = "/forum/"; and it doesn't work. I just get a BLANK PAGE.

    So I tried $vb_dir = "localhost/forum/" and it doesn't work. BLANK PAGE.

    I've seen all sorts of weird settings for $vb_dir = "/home/www/www/blah/" ... what exactly should it be set to?

    Why aren't there any clear examples in the documentation that show how to make this work? I've spent eight hours researching it and it still does not work!

    etc. etc. etc. ... where is the documentation on this? Doesn't anyone know how to make this work? Putting the CMS in the root should work!

    Since this is an existing site, how do I move my ../forums/ setup back to my root level? I need to be very careful, as I do not want to mess up my site running VB since 2001... The instructions provided do not describe my situation... (I don't think so, becuase I can't understand it clearly)

    Can you please help me with a more detailed steps?

    You'll need to have your site installed in the root and use the 'sub-directories' then upload the relevant folders from the do_not_upload folder to make this work.

    started a topic [CMS] VB 4.1.1 - Doesn't work...

    VB 4.1.1 - Doesn't work...

    I have upgraded my site to VB 4.1.1

    My VB forum is located at
    http://www.christianmom.com/forums/

    I went into my ADMINCP, and set the following

    Forum URL = http://www.christianmom.com/forums
    Always Use Forums URL as Base Path = Yes

    Forum Component URL = set to http://www.christianmom.com/forums
    CMS Component URL = set to http://www.christianmom.com
    Blog Component URL = set to http://www.christianmom.com/blog

    However, when I go to http://www.christianmom.com, it just shows a list of my folders...

    How do I make this work?

    Thanks in advance -

    Migrate URL
    by rickbath
    Hi All,

    I have recently installed VB v5 on my server.
    The forum url was pointing to the /upload folder.

    I would like to update it to the root folder but am having issues...
