Move Forum From Sub Directory To Root Directory

Post by Keith W »

Hi All,

It has been a while since I have used phpBB so things have got a bit rusty and could do with some help with the following.

I have my forum installed in the following directory: domainname.com/forum

I would now like it to be in just: domainname.com

Can anyone please explain how I go about doing this please?

Thanks in advance.

Copy the files to the root then go into the Administration Control Panel (ACP) > GENERAL tab > Server Configuration > Server settings and change the script path to the root. You should also check the cookie settings, but they probably will not need to be changed.

Then rename/remove the folder on the server once your sure it’s all working ok.
