This tutorial will show you how to transfer your forum to another dire
This tutorial will show you how to transfer your forum to another directory.
e.g. yoursite.com/forums to yoursite.com/bbs

Step 1. First backup your forum directory and database! I take no responsibly for this tutorial being followed incorrectly.

Step 2. Go to Admin CP / TOOLS & SETTINGS / System Settings / General Configuration

Find Upload URL and Path to 'upload' directory
In my example we would change

Upload URL: [url="http://www.yoursite.com/forums/uploads"]http://www.yoursite.com/forums/uploads[/url] to [url="http://www.yoursite.com/bbs/uploads"]http://www.yoursite.com/bbs/uploads[/url]
Path to 'upload' directory: /home/username/public_html/forums/uploads to /home/username/public_html/bbs/uploads

Now click 'Update Settings'

Step 3. Open a ftp client, edit conf_global.php
Find:

[code]$INFO['board_url'] = 'http://www.yoursite.com/forums';[/code]

In my example we would change it to

[code]$INFO['board_url'] = 'http://www.yoursite.com/bbs';[/code]

Remember never to put a '/' at the end of the url.
Save and your done
