Server URL settings?

Post by EDG2 »

I have installed a new instance of phpbb3.0.9 on my website, which currently has the default "(website)/phpBB3/index.php" address. However, I've also set up a redirect (that will hopefully be active within the next couple of days) so that the forum will be publicly accessible by going directly to http://www.sfrpg-discussion.net .

Do I need to put my default website domain name in the Server URL Settings of the board, or do I need to force it to http://www.sfrpg-discussion.net to make this work?

why not just install it in the root and not worry about all the redirects that may cause you problems with cookies etc.

just move all the files and folders from the phpBB3 folder ( not the phpBB3 folder itself ) up one level on your server and you are done.

Because that's not the way I want it set up? I already have a wordpress site as the root.

Would anyone be able to answer my specific question please?

It really depends how things are configured, when you've got your redirect set up come back if you have issues.
