Web-path to Vanilla (Application Settings)

edited March 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I successfully launched a new forum, but don't like the fact that the URL address in the browser is, "". Now the world knows our User ID and our Hosting company. After looking at some of the other forum discussions, I'm worried I will loose everything if I try messing with, "Application Settings, Web-path to Vanilla". When you're in the forum, I would like the browser URL to be something like, "". Does anyone have any advice. Please keep in mind, I am not a developer, so keep it simple if at all possible.

Thanks much!

    @Snowball & @Raize: Make a backup copy of, then open, the file /conf/settings.php and change all occurrences of "" to "".

    Are you suggesting I backup the "settings.php" file from "forum/configure/settings.php" and then make the change?
