Problem changing URL!!

Post by morgan »

I need a little help with my site's URL. I read similar posts on phpbb.com but as the site is down I can't find them again and I can't seem to find any threads on here, sorry if this is a repost :oops: !

My problem: currently my home page is example.net/phpbb3/home.php, and my forum is example.net/phpbb3/index.php. However I would prefer my homepage to be example.net and my forum to be example.net/forum or something similar. Can someone point me in the right direct please??!! :)

To change the folder name that the forum is in

admin panel
server settings
script path
Change it to /forum (or the name you want)
Then rename the phpBB3 folder on the server.

On your "server settings" page, make sure "Force server URL settings:" is set to "No",
then just copy everything from your /phpbb3 folder into your root folder on your web server.
(This might be from "/public_html/phpbb3/" to "/public_html/" or somethign similar, depending upon how your web host names their folders.)

Edit. Kevin beat me. Either method will work.
