    1) Upload the files from do_not_upload/forums to your forums directory.

    2) Go to Settings -> Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details and set the Forum Component URL to the proper address.

    3) If you use Mod_Rewrite rules then upload the file under do_not_upload/rewrite/apache2/forums to your forums directory.

      Hi Wayne,

      Thank you for the quick response.

      How about the forum.php which is already installed with the publishing suite?

        The files in do_not_upload/forums should include a forum.php stub which would get uploaded. You shouldn't move any other files.

          Sorry, i don't get it. I installed the publishing suite and uploaded the directory forums to the root. Do you know which variables in vBsetting should i change? (I must change it directly in the database, because i can't login to admincp after this)

            You installed vBulletin in root. You shouldn't touch this in any way shape or form. Reupload your default files to the root directory.

            After you have properly restored your files then create a directory called forums.

            Upload the contents of do_not_upload/forums to the forums directory.

            Then go to SETTINGS -> OPTIONS -> SITE NAME / URL / CONTACT DETAILS.

            Add your domain plus the directory of /forums into the forum component url setting.

              I figured it out. There are two settings for forum. One called 'Forum URL' and the other 'Forum Component URL'. I put subdomain.mydomain.com/forums for both of them and my style disappeared. I then remoed "/forums" bit from the 'Forum URL' and it worked. Apparantly i shouldn't put "/forums" in de 'Forum URL'. Correct?

                Oh yeah, btw...it's weird that when i click on Usercp that i get redirect to the root directory again and i don't see the /forums/usercp.php in the url but only /usercp.php. How come there is no usercp.php file in the do_not_upload/forum directory?

                  The UserCP isn't part of the forum component.
