Forum folder name change

Post by anetTammy »

If I want to change the name of the folder where the phpbb is located on my site, what files need to be altered?

Say I change it from domain.com/phpbb2
to
domain.com/forum

You need to go into the CP and in the forum config settings you change the path that is currently showing.

Once you have done this, submit it.

Then (through ftp or some other means) just change the name of the root folder.

All you need to change is the setting for "script path" in admin panel --> general admin --> configuration. Do that and then just rename the folder :)
