I'm hosted on a Win2000 server and setup a "forums" directory, http://www.mysite/forums, with all the browser permissions needed by a CGI-BIN directory (read,write,execute, and delete).

If you can set directory permissions through an admin tool, that would be the way to go, or request it. Unless your host limits you to the cgi-bin directory only.


Okay - I just got off the phone with the host tech. He said I can have a folder off of the main site named 'forum' as long as I have the .htaccess file (which he put in my existing cgi-bin/forum directory and said I could move it when I needed it) and it's not necessary keep the forum in the cgi-bin.

Here's the question. Now that I've installed everything in the cgi-bin/forum directory, set things up, modified templates, etc. how would I make a smooth transition over to the mysite/forum directory? Would I have to do another install and then copy over some files or could I simply move the forum folder out of the cgi-bin directory and move it to the mysite folder and change the urls/paths in the Admin setup to reflect this?

Thanks again.
