edited September 2013 in Tutorials

Hi, earlier on i created a temporary folder to install my vanilla.
example: www.xyx.com/vanilla

now i would like to rename to www.xyz.com/forum

how do i do that? I tried boldly renaming it and then clear the cache but later it shows
vanilla/index.php not found.

how do i fix that? please help.

    sounds like your .htaccess rewrite root.

    post your .httaccess between three tildes

    code goes here

    grep is your friend.

    you have to also change .htaccess and uncomment the line
    if you haven't done so already.

     # Certain hosts may require the following line.
       # If vanilla is in a subfolder then you need to specify it after the /. 
       # (ex. You put Vanilla in /forum so change the next line to: RewriteBase /forum)
       # RewriteBase /

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Did you use a special script or the standard phpBB script?
