First of all, a disclaimer and plea for gentleness. I am the type of person who knows JUST enough to really screw stuff up, and then not enough to be able to adequately explain when I beg for help. Rolleyes I'm sure I deserve a big slap with the stupid fish...

I used to have my forums at my homepage at Last night I installed WordPress as the index page, and tried to move my forums to

I use FileZilla and I moved the forums via FZ. Unfortunately, I first moved them to a wrong folder I 'piggyback' BP off my main domain of, so there were multiple folders and subfolders, so I accidentally moved them first to an incorrect subfolder. No big deal I thought; I found the files and moved them to the correct subfolder.

Now, my forums are totally screwed up ( Sad They are still technically there, which is what confuses me most of all. They just have no formatting. When I try to click on the admin cp, I get this:
Quote:Not Found
The requested URL /admin/index.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/1.3.33 Server at Port 80

I apologize in advance for whatever information you may need that I'm not giving--just let me know if you do need more info. Basically I'm just at a loss as to what I did wrong, or which element I missed transferring. Any ideas?

If i am not mistaken your links are calling up the wrong address. You need to call up /forums/admin/index.php and once there you need to change your settings to reflect the change then it should all work out ok.


Also at some point you may want to change your admin folder. By that i mean rename it to something else. Its safer that way. But you need to edit your config.php file to reflect this also i believe.
Thanks Damink! I am working right now, but will put your suggestions into process in a bit. Makes sense about the admin folder too--I never thought about that.

I'll let you know how things go. Smile

Edited to say: IT worked! Thank you SO much! Smile
Any time mate. Smile
