i want to move my vanilla folder from
what is the easy way to do it?
rename the folder and change the .htaccess
I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
And delete the ini files in the cache folder.
what about the settings in vanilla?
they will be changed automatically?
as long as you follow the steps. you should be fine.
what I would do is these exact steps. (so you don't have recursion issues)
if you have problems after doing so. come back.
if you added specific links or routes via customization, you may need to reflect the changes.
make a backup of your source directory and zip it up, if you want to play it safe.
you can do this if you want to be extra secure.
what changes needs to be done in .htaccess?
see the part about rewriting urls in this comment
you can also see it in the FAQ
reading all the comments in those discussions, may prove helpful as well.
Do you want to redirect users from an old forum to a new forum?
meaning if they click on your old forum site url, they automatically get redirected to the new forum site url.
if so that is a different question. and someone can give you a suggestion for a change to .htaccess to redirect users from your old url to your new site.
but you need to be clear what you want to do,
if you just want to rename folder structure the above comments should be sufficient.
No, i don't need redirection.
I want to move the url of vanilla which is one folder to the main sub domain
i want it to be moved to
you could move all the source from /vanilla folder to /
assuming the root folder does not use any other software like wordpress in the root folder and you do not have other index.php in the /
unless someone wants to suggest rewrite rules to accomplish this.
perhaps your host could help you with that.
you can also use $Configuration['Garden']['WebRoot'], $Configuration['Garden']['StripWebRoot']and .htaccess to accomplish that without moving files.
x00 has written an excellent tutorial for that:http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/comment/202822#Comment_202822

I don't feel qualified to explain it or test it. but feel free to add it. you would probably do a better job than me explaining this one
