Work on server with domain, now no forum post totals
« on: May 02, 2019, 02:14:13 PM »
what basically happened is that I was told before creating my forum they would move the domain to the root. After over 3 months of coping the site from my other software, they tell me that they moved the documents to the root and not the entire domain. Now I have a situation where the post count on the forum is not registering, it is 0 on all even the one I had posted last night. Everything works but I have that issue because the entire site is on the root and the .net is from public_html  I feel this is not considered good practice and want to correct it so that my forum and .net are together How can I accomplish that without loosing over the 800 e-book posts I made?

What's wrong with having the forum installed in the root of your site?
I have that for most of my sites.

If the forum is your only, or your main website interface, then putting it in the root makes sense.

1- download, upload and run repair_settings.php   https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Repair_settings.php
2- run "Recount Forum Statistics"


but your count seems to be just fine

I believe the sources are messed up specifically BoardIndex.php   I guess I will have to copy the entire forum over again...
