I have been happy with version 2.6.4 for several years now (since 2004). At this point, however, the rest of my site is forcing me to change to a "larger" and newer server at the same hosting company. I will be retaining the FreeBSD unix. The support people have moved all the data and folders as follows:
the forumdata folder goes from /usr/local/forumdata to /usr/local/forumdata (In other words, no change.)
The "public" folder, does change path from
/usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs/wforum to
/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/wforum.
Also, the mysql database changes from version 3.23 to version 5.0, and the data has been dumped, moved, and successfully imported from a database named mysql on the old server to a database named rpimysql on the new server.
I notice that all these paths and names are on the forum control panel. Is there any reason I can't change/update these values and just carry on? Is there some central file that I could modify the values in before launching the forum home page? Or do I have to go to square 1 and install the forum on the new server from scratch?
Thanks.
