symbolic link to site
I originally set up my forums at http://support.clubnavigator.co.uk/...est-Forum/gforum.cgi

now that they're working I'd like a different URL pointing to the site, so I created a hard link from http://www.longhotsummer.co.uk/gforum.cgi to the above address.

It seems to work most of the time, but some users find that cookies don't work and some times when they post a message they get thrown out of the site. If they log directly into the support.clubnavigator... pages then all is well.

Will the boards not work this way or do I need to set some of the paths in the admin screen to use the longhotsummer address. At the moment they all use the support.clubnavigator... site.

You're best bet would be to rename/move the folder appropriatly, and then use 'grep' (via SSH) to search and replace all your paths/URL's (which would have obviously changed). There are a few good threads (search for "grep", by "Andy"), which give you the commands that will work for grep.

Hope that helps :)

Thanks for that, but will it not create a problem in the compiled templates ? Do they contain a checksum ?
