    If i change the default directory of my forum it is need to make two .htacces? i mean if i need to leave my Currently .htacces to root and make new one in new directory for forum? the forums are installed at -http://www.domain.com and I would like to move the forums to -http://www.domain.com/board

    Just want to know how this will affect the links in the search engines as links are usually shown as -http://www.domain.com/blah-blah-blah.html?


    Thanks

    Actually, if moving from /domain root to /domain/forums, you may find you have to edit the RewriteBase line to reflect the new structure. Also you will most certainly have to edit your site URL in ACP.
