Moving Installed Forum from http://www.website.com/forums to http://forum.website.com

edited April 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 Help

I have tried to move my installed forum from http://www.website.com/forums to http://forum.website.com with little success. For additional information, I used simple scripts. I believe during my initial installation to abc.com/forums, it created a database for me.

I went into simple scripts's Vanilla Forums Panel
which only gave me 3 options - namely:
- Update Access Configuration
If you have recently changed your password, or renamed your hosting account, use this utility.
- Update Location
If you manually reconfigured your installation to another domain or folder, use this utility.
- Update Version
If you have upgraded or downgraded this installation via any other upgrade method, use this utility.

When I tried to update the new location to install the vanilla forums simplescript installer to forum.website.com it worked for a moment, until I uninstalled the original installation at http://www.website.com/forums.

Now I am getting a error message when I try to access my forum.website.com and website.com/forums is gone as I was uninstalling it to prevent the duplicate after "successful" move.

I'm getting the Bonk error message, does anyone have any experience with moving the forums?

I'm struggling to think if I can include anymore information which might be useful to resolving this. Hope someone can help.

Thanks guys.
