Redirecting


#1

Hi,

I had a phpBB2 forum set up at http://www.dustyfingaz.com/ but I just updated to phpBB3 (which is amazing btw). My forum ins now located in http://www.dustyfingaz.com/phpBB3/ but when my users visit they get the old forum so I need to redirect them right? but I have no clue how do do that.

If anyone can help that would be great. Thanks.

This comes up often in this forum. Do a search on ‘redirect’ and check some of them out.

There are few ways to do that.

  1. You can make use of htaccess file. Refer to this article as a tutorial and you should have the idea what to do.

I am not very good at htaccess. But I guess for your case, you should write:
Redirect /index.html /PHPBB3/

  1. Alternatively, you can edit the home folder of a domain via DH panel --> Domains --> Manage Domains --> Web Hosting --> Edit --> Specify your web directory. For your case, you should change it to /home/username/domainname/PHPBB3
