take all the forum files out of the forum folder and place them into the web root keeping the file structure. then run the following mod to change the script and cookie settings to reflect the folder change
Download Auto Cookies MOD

then, unzip it to your computer,


then upload the included install folder, to your phpbb folder on the server.,

then , in your browser, go to:
yourdomain.com/yourphpbbb/install/cookie.php

then click the button to accept the settings it finds.

then delete the install folder.

Then you and all your members MUST do the cookie dance:

step 1. log out
step 2. clear your browser cookie
step 3. clear your browser cache/temporary internet files
step 4. close your browser
step 5. go back and test


done.

It looks like they’re giving away an xBox 360 and the
Gear’s of War game every week until 12/15. Pretty cool game.
