  • Installation Location

    When installing vBulletin does it have to go into a folder directly underneath my main url folder or can it be placed deeper?

    For instance, does it have to go into http://www.clmag.com/forums or can it go into http://www.clmag.com/members/forums?

    You can place it anywhere you want on your webspace.

      Is there anything special I have to do to move it to another folder or do I just go into ws_ftp and copy it to the new location and then delete the old location files?

      If there is a tutorial somewhere on moving please direct me toward it.

      Thanks

        There's no tutorial but it does assume you know how to upload files and arrange directories.

        I don't know what you mean by 'move'. Have you already uploaded the vB files? If so, where?

          I have my files installed and my board functioning at http://www.clmag.com/forums. I just want it moved to http://www.clmag.com/members/forums.

          I am familiar with setting up folders, copy files to new folders, uploading and downloading. I just wondered if I created http://www.clmag.com/members and then created http://www.clmag.com/members/forums if I could then take the files I already have functioning and stick them into and beneath the new forums location and it would all still work without any editing of files.

            As long as you move all the files and the subdirectories and their files, this will work.
