  • If I want to move the /forums/ directory somewhere else on my server, and rename it..

    ..would the forum/board still work?

    The situation is as follows:


    my board is called 'the Couch', located (currently) at:
    www.aravillian.com/forums/

    However, aravillian.com is only ONE site out of my project-sites, and soon I will have the main site up, which will be at kurafire.com but STACKED on aravillian.com (i.e. in my FTP server I will see a directory called 'kurafire.com' which works as a whole new domain).

    the Couch is the board to go along with kurafire.com and I want it located at www.kurafire.com/thecouch/ so I'm wondering: can I just MOVE the entire aravillian.com/forums/ directory behind my kurafire.com (stacked) domain? Would it still work then or would I have to reinstall it completely, etc. ??

    Please tell me how is the best way to solve this 'problem' of mine. Thanks in advance.

    You can copy it to a new directory without a problem.

    Just check the URLs in the options page to point to the right one.

      so I should copy it, not move it?
      (and afterwards delete the old dir.)

        You can copy it or move it. Doesn't matter. But if you copy it, you always have the old dir as a backup if something fails.
