Generally, just move all phpBB files from /forum subfolder to the parent folder.

Move the files to the location where the home.html file is. It is in a folder, but your host may not be showing it.

Remember to move just the CONTENTS of the /forum folder, not the /forum folder itself.

that is not correct way to do that and that is not what you need to be doing anyway.

move all of the files and folders from your folder named forum up one level to the root of the server.

then, you can delete the empty folder named forum.

ok, do the following exactly and in order. do not do anything not listed and do everything that is listed here:
1. using only your ftp program , download the complete forum folder to your computer somewhere.

2. now, in your ftp open it up so that on the right hand side you see just what you showed us in that list.

3. now, in your ftp, open the folder named forum so that you see all the files/folders of your board listed on the left side of your ftp.

4. now,
grab all of the files and folders from the left side and drag them all over to the right side and drop them.

remember, you must get them all at once.

just click on the adm folder and the scroll down and while holding down the shift key, click on the last file in the list ( usually the one named web.config ) that will highlight them all at once. then you just drag and drop or you can just click on the transfer button in your ftp etc.


that should do it. there will be no need to mess with the htaccess file. when you upload all the phpbb files it will overwrite the one you have that redirects to the board so don't worry about that.
