Forums in the root

    I created a new site with the multi-site mode just for the forum but I can’t put it in the root (forums.example.com). I can only put it in a subfolder (forums.example.com/forums). How can I fix this?

  • Sorry to hijack your question, but I raised a question yesterday as I am unable to get it on example.com/forums … how did you manage that?

    <VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "your-htdocs/forums.example.com"
    ServerName forums.example.com
    </VirtualHost>

    <VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "your-htdocs/example.com"
    ServerName example.com
    ServerAlias www.example.com
    </VirtualHost>

    on *apache-config-dir*/sites-available/default (*apache-config-dir*extrahttpd-vhosts.conf on windows) (or somewhere else)

    hi zaerl, thanx for the fix, but it didn’t work on my case:

    I wrote in my htaccess file

    <VirtualHost *:80>

    DocumentRoot “/public_html/forumcine.ma/wordpress”

    ServerName forumcine.ma

    ServerAlias http://forumcine.ma

    </VirtualHost>

    this results in a 500 internal server error.

    I don’t have access to httpd-vhosts.conf

    How do you just get the forum index to show up on the homepage?

    @cashman – Create a page, title it whatever you like but I titled my example “Forum”. Put “[bbp-forum-index]” including the brackets as the content of the page and publish it.

    Then go to Settings -> Reading in the Admin panel. Change the “Front Page Displays” option to page and select “Forum” or whatever you named the page.

    @Andre: Thanks, that was too easy!

    Whatever this topic is too long time or not, I can still apply the way advised by Andre with bbPress 2.2.3

    Really appreciated with your kind support Andre
