So just to clarify...  I want to change the location of my forum from www.mysite.com to www.mysite.com/forum/

To do so I should first upload this script to my current root folder (vs. the new one), then after I run the script indicating the www.mysite.com/forum/ folder, I then copy all my forum files to that folder?

Which do I do first?

Thanks.

Okay, I jumped right in and changed the settings via the script... things looked good, so I went ahead and created my new subfolder and moved my forum folders to the appropriate place on my server.  When I put in my www.mysite.com/forum link, all my .css is gone... I have the skeleton of my forum, but the style, even the default template does not appear.

Any ideas?

Make sure that you didn't miss any files during the moving.

Thanks for the quick response... I did make sure that all files were moved.  Is there any way the .css could get messed up by doing this?  Do I have to do anything special with installed themes?

You can see it normally now because I changed everything back to the way it was...

Just wanted to get some tips before I tried again... so you're saying that nothing should mess up the .css by doing this move.  Seems easy enough, just surprised to see all the styles lost.

I'm 100% sure I moved everything, but I can try again.

Maybe an issue with your FTP client.  It shouldn't get messed up. 

EDIT:  I reread your other post.  You should run repair_settings.php AFTER you do the move.

I must be an idiot, I click on the link in the first post to download repair_settings.php and it takes me to the SMF download page. Where is this magical mystical file to be found?

Here.  There seem's to be an issue with the download system and files with PHP extensions.

Alright, I downloaded it and used all the suggested options. My message icons and smileys still don't work. It seems to just be the javascript that doesn't allow users to click on icons and add them to the message box. The forum seems to work just fine though. I think it may be an issue with my new hosting company. I switched from a windows server to linux. I'll check with their support section. They offer SMF as part of their hosting package. I'm sure someone has come across this over there.

Running: SMF 1.1 RC2

Try replacing the script.js file on the default theme with a new one.  If that doesn't work PM me a test account.

You may also need to use this file if you change one of the above settings, and your forum stops working properly.  While this should not happen often, it is possible, which again is why this tool is provided.  If this tool does not solve your problems, please try repair_paths.php

Is there any way to get this tool as well (the link only brings up the SMF download page for forum software... nothing else)?  I've attempted repair_settings.php, but I'm getting the message: "Some settings are not being shown because the MySQL connection information is incorrect."  (The information I entered is correct.)

Currently my forum is inaccessable:  http://www.storsteinanderson.com/testsmf/index.php [nofollow] (I have 1.1 rc2) with the error message:  "Connection Problems  Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later. "

Right now I'm willing to beg borrow or steal to get this fixed if possible.  So, if you could direct me where I can download repair_paths.php, I'd greatly appreciate it!  Thank you!
