Switching URL to a subdomain

  • extremejacob


    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.

    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 to

    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?
