How to rename vanilla forum folder

I tried the .htaccess way ( found here: ) but I had no luck.

I'm as well moving a 2.1 install to where the previous 2.0 was (both where in folder), yet after renaming the 2.1 folder, I'm getting an error 500 (blank page), if I rename it back it works fine, what am I missing?

       RewriteEngine On
       # 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 /foros
       RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
       RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
       RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php\?p=$1 [QSA,L]

    Interestingly enough, the old forum also fail in the new folder I send it to ( , but here I get a more interesting message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function val() in .../public_html/foros/library/core/class.request.php on line 341

    It seems to be looking for the old path :s
