Moving forum domain to root instead of subdomain

The Skyforge

Recommended Posts

Hello all. So I currently have a VPS running both WordPress and IPB.

My WP based site is set to www.theskyforge.com
My IPB forums are set to www.theskyforge.com/forums

I will be moving my WP site to another domain, but for now I would like to have www.theskyforge.com point directly to my forums.

What changes do I have to make to make this possible? Also since I have my WP site set as "www.theskyforge.com", can I simply change that in WordPress to point to say /home?

Thank you in advance.

Well, after you've moved your site to another Domain. Just copy the files from the forum folder in the main folder (for me it's httpdocs). Then change in conf_global.php the base_url from http://www.theskyforge.com/forums to http://www.theskyforge.com/ (If you are using SSL (recommended) use https instead of http)

This is also very important:
