Help, my Vanilla has fallen and can't get up!

edited September 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I did something completely stupid and now I can't figure out where to go to fix it. I changed my Vanilla URL to the redirect I set up via my site host (forums.project17productions.com), and it screwed everything up. But now I can't get into the settings because I forgot to add the "/" to the end of the address in Vanilla! :( I just want everything to go back to the way it was... lol. What file stores the Application Settings for Vanilla?

    Ok, nevermind that problem for now (I figured out what file stored the settings)... now I have another question.

    When I load up my forum on the original URL I was using, http://www.project17productions.com/forum, it works perfectly fine. But when I load it from http://forums.project17productions.com, it comes up in text only, and doesn't recognize my login from when I log in under the other URL. What did I do wrong here? Is there an easy way to make the forums.project17productions.com URL work correctly? What (probably ridiculously simple) step am I missing?

    bits of investigation: one finds http://www.project17productions.com/forum/themes/vanilla/styles/europeaftertherain/vanilla.css the other doesn't find http://forums.project17productions.com/forum/themes/vanilla/styles/europeaftertherain/vanilla.css

    Do you want to use forums. exclusively or do you need to be able to use /forums too?

    I'd prefer to use forums. exclusively, mostly because that's how I've got everything else set up on the site (i.e., blog.project17productions.com, etc.). I *THINK* I know how to do it... but I'm scared to try until I get confirmation, lol.

    My guess is I would need to change this section here in conf/settings.php:

    $Configuration['WEB_ROOT'] = '/forum/'; <-- Set this to "/"?
    $Configuration['BASE_URL'] = 'http://www.project17productions.com/forum/'; <-- Set this to "http://forums.project17productions.com/"?
    $Configuration['FORWARD_VALIDATED_USER_URL'] = 'http://www.project17productions.com/forum/'; <-- Set this to "http://forums.project17productions.com/"?
    ...
    ...
    $Configuration['COOKIE_DOMAIN'] = 'www.project17productions.com'; <-- Set this to "forums.project17productions.com"?

    Just a technical point I would make, me being pedantic to a fault!

    There is actually no such word as "forums" in the English language, the plural of forum is actually fora although through common usage forums seems to be accepted these days.

    actually, according to merriam-webster, forums not only exists in english but is the preferred pluralization.

    hate to be even more pedantic...

    (also plural is an adjective, not a noun)

    Interesting comments, but neither of you are helping my problem any. :p

    Scorpius - That should be all you need to do, however then to get the style working you also need to change the path to the theme. To do this you'd need to go into the database and change the URL field in the LUM_STYLE table (i think) to remove the forum folder from that path.

    Ok Mini... I'll take a look at that sometime over the weekend. Thanks!
