Switching URL to a subdomain
I tried looking around for a solution, but I only found enough info to mess my system up slightly. I think I am missing one crucial part of the solution.
I have installed bbpress as
with a folder
This works great.
However, I want to move this to a subdomain like this
If I make such a subdomain on my host, this will also use the public_html/forum folder. So far so good. (I used my host’s cpanel for this, no redirects.)
I went to Admin/General Settings and changed the URL from
website.com/forum/ to forum.website.com/
What happens then is the all the forum names come up and you can log in, but the posts are gone. Also, I get a lot of 500 errors.
I use name-based permalinks. (I suspect the problem may have something to do with this?)
I figure I need to do some 301 redirects in my .htaccess for whenever someone has ahref’ed a forum post, that’s no problem—I’ll do that later.
The problem right now is that I can’t see the forum posts anymore?!
It’s like some of the databases work but others (the post) do not.
Did I do something wrong or am I missing something?
