How do you move a forum from one folder to another?

This seems easy enough but it didn't work.

I have a forum set up with minimal content at the following web address.

I want to move it to this web address.

Tried just moving the folder and that didn't work as it gave a 'file not found' error.
How can I do this?

    Same problem here. Moved my entire site from
    /www/site1.1/forum/ to /www/site/forum
    and I get "Failed opening required '/*****/forum/applications/controllers/class.controller.php"

    I checked the dispatcher class and it seems that
    $ControllerPath = Gdn_FileSystem::FindByMapping('controller', PATH_APPLICATIONS, $ControllerWhiteList, $ControllerFileName);
    returns a path corresponding to the old folder.

    Solved it:

    When moving you Vanilla installation from one folder to another, make sure to go into your cache folder (ex: /forum/cache) and delete all the files inside (not the containing folders or folder structure, just the files in them!).

    Hope this helps.
