The board will be disabled to all users except admins and moderators if the install directory is in place. There are no pros.

ok thanks guess i wont tick it then.

I just transferred this new domain to a host, i get board errors even trying to log in on a fresh default install. Im guessing its due to the domain just being transferred.

Depends what the error messages are.

A standard installation with the files from this site does not have the tick option you're talking about though. We can't always fully support host installed versions.
