Try Vanilla Forums Cloud product
Vanilla 2.6 is here! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2 with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.
Please upgrade to 2.3 here. The 2.2 and earlier branches are no longer being updated.

RFC - Symlink for forum URL

Hello, I was not very forward-thinking on one of my forum installs.. ie. domain.com/forum3/

Now that all is working.. I'd like to change the 'forum3' to something more appetizing. I was thinking I could simply create a linux Symlink.

So visitors would see: domain.com/forum/.. but behind the scenes would really be accessing forum3.

Any thoughts on this?... why it might not work?

Another idea would be creating a web server alias with the same idea.

Thanks,
Donovan
