    hey all,

    Wanting some help here please. I want to install XenForo on xenforo.mydomain.com instead of mydomain.com/xenforo.

    I currently have WordPress installed on the root.

    Any help to achieve this would be really appreciated!

    Make a folder called XenForo on mydomain.com and install XF there.
    You will have mydomain.com/XenForo
    In the site's control panel make XenForo to be a subdomain.
    Your forum will be accessible as mydomain.com/XenForo and XenForo.mydomain.com

    What control panel do you have? What you are looking for is called sub domain just look for that in the manual how to set it up.

    Hmmm... Seems like you'd simply need to install the XF into the directory of your choice - then simply add a sub-domain via cPanel. And not particularly in that order mind you. You probably should create the sub-domain first and simply add it as the url to the XF install. Should be a rather simple process using cPanel.

    HTH,

    With plesk its different you’ll need to make sub domain and system tells you where to upload your files. But it’s basically the same idea.

    Thanks for your replies! Apologies forgot to mention what CP I am using (cPanel).

    Okay, so I have installed XenForo on /community - however, I would like the URL to constantly stay on the subdomain (community.mydomain) - whenever I visit community.mydomain, there is a re-direction to /community.

    #1 Are you sure that you created that subdomain?
    #2 "Visitors cannot view your subdomain immediately. Changes to DNS records may require two days or more to reach all of the nameservers on the Internet."

    Then you have to wait for a few hours/days.

    I'm pretty sure I said this at about noon with a pot of coffee and a slice of pie lmao. 1:30 am would present an entirely different list of edibles/drinkables.

    But damn! Apple pie would be good right NOW!

    Am I correct in thinking that those pies won't really be fresh if you picked one up at that time? :eek: :cry:

    All depends; if it's a local bakery then they'd likely be making them fresh at that time of day to prep for opening in the morning. Years ago, when I was a but a wee lad in my teens, I worked for a mom & pop bakery and it was rare that any actual baking was done while the store front was open, the real work started around midnight.

    By coincidence I did have some apple pie tonight, but it was from Costco, not a local shop. Still tasty though.

    There is a bakery here in Quincy, CA that opens in the wee hours of the night, but they don't do apple pie right. So, if I have to have apple pie at that time of the night, I go to the 24hr grocery (Safeway) and buy off the shelf. It's not homemade, but it's not bad either. Serving it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream makes it a worthwhile late-night snack.

    Did you get it right? If you have cpanel you just set the subdomain and then install it. I did it myself few days ago, if you need help, give me a shout

    Do they have a storefront? Might make for a nice long exposure shot? ;) And you could get some fresh baked goods at the same time. :D


    Looks like in #11 above he got it working so talk has turned to pies. :D

    They do, but it's about as inspiring as a brown paper bag. I'm kinda boycotting them anyway. They don't open on time (off by an hour sometimes), the owners, both healthy, park their vehicle in the only handicap space and their donut glaze has a sickly sweet taste - almost like the ultra sweet cough medicine mother used to spoon us kids.
