move all of the files and folders out of the folder named forum , up one level to the main root of your site.

then you can delete the empty folder named forum

that is it.

In addition to what Robert said, you also need to change the script path at ACP -> Server settings from /forum to just /.

actually, unless you have "force server settings" set to yes, that is not really necessary. however, it will not hurt anything.
