change forum folder





Hunterseaker
eey guys
I want to change my forum folder that is now phpBB2 in forum but when
I change the folder into forum what else do i have to change then?because i suppose that some roots are wrong when i change the folder,
can some discribe very detailed what i have to do?

this is a complicated way, but i dont know any other way to du it..

take a bakup of your forumdatabase (both in your site, but also in your direct admin)

copy your phpBB2 folder to your computer.
opload it to the new destination (both will take a LOOONG time!!!)
opload the install and the contrib folder.

reinstall it (you have done that before, if not, you can use one of the toturials in here!)

delete the contrib and the install folder.
opload your database (also both in phpBB2 and the direct admin)
and the forum should run...


IF the are a better way to do this.. pleace write!!!

this is only one way and i know it will work if you do it currectly

so all the registrated members are stored in the database?

but are there more options? pls people give me suggestions

Just copy the folder to the new location. Before doing this, maybe change the path in the config of your admin panel. Otherwise you can do it afterwards in phpmyAdmin.
