Re: Fatal Error?
You can make that change in your 1&1 control panel. Administration > Domains > click the domain name, click the Destination [Edit] button, then select the /forums/ directory from the “Existing directory” select box. That directs all traffic destined for mysite.com to whatever website you have installed in the forums directory (which is bbPress in this case.)
That works fine if you want your bbPress installation to be the whole website mysite.com and everything is in the ‘forums’ directory. It’s the most direct way to do it, since you have the option to do it this way. It basically hides the fact that things are in a ‘forums’ directory, just like all the rest of the web server path is hidden. My full path is something like
/kunden/homepages/46/d93680635/htdocs, and then each website has a subfolder there.
Your subfolder will be called “forums”, but people visiting your site will never know.
