At the very least, you would have to redirect the domain to the forum directory, repair_settings won't do that.  Better to fix the domain.

SMF 2.1.x Support / Looking for new host - any adv...
Last post by TiU - Today at 01:43:29 PM
Hostgator broke our forum beyond repair.

Does anybody have any recommendations for other hosting companies where there is less likelihood that the host will break the forum.  https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=589198.0

Also, what is the best backup format to use to copy from our host?

Thanks.

Yes, I can rename it.  I'll try that later today, and then use the repair tool.

Quote from: SRenfrow on Today at 01:22:22 PMDoes that sound like what I need to do? i.e. Change my forum folder name (from hxxp:pawsietogsforum.xxx [nonactive] to CONNECT as the new folder name), then run the repair tool?

Yes, all you have to do is rename the folder where you have installed your forum to whatever new name you want to use and then use the aforementioned tool afterwards to straighten out all paths and urls.

can  you change the name of the folder pawsietogsforum.com to community?

if so then run What is repair_settings.php? and you should be good to go.

I would like to change the URL from 'forum' to 'community'.

Would someone please be able to tell me how to achieve this?

All you have to do is rename your forum folder from 'forum' to 'community' and then run the repair_settings tool. Click on all the recommended values and save the changes.
