I went into phpMyAdmin and deleted any columns or references to anything like that ("drop" command I think it is, rather than just an "empty" command).
Right now, my forum is at mydomain.com and I will have to make a mydomain/phpBB3 folder. Once I get phpBB3 working how I want, I can delete the files and folders out of the root directory (except the phpBB3 folder) and then just drag and drop the files, right?
BTW, I have a change log with a link to all mods I did. I was planning on adding/changing the site, then making it live.
You'll probably need to change the script path in the server settings module, and the cookie path in the cookie settings module. You're also best off changing the cookie name at the same time.
Other than that, there's not much that needs changed when you're just moving the physical files.
