Need to set up a domain name with Xampp

Postby Xcynic » 02. August 2007 00:58

Hello everyone, and thanks for any help I might recieve.

This is my issue.


I bought a domain and installed Vbulletin forums on it, however when I write my domain name in the adressbar it comes to my Xampp configurations. This also happens when others do it. Though when i add /forum on the domain name I come to the forums as intended.

Now, I would like to know how to fix this. So that ppl get to my Forums even without writing /forum after the domain.

Thanks in advance.

There are many ways to do this

1) Easiest is to create an index.html in the base directory that redirects with a content-refresh meta tag pointing to /forums
(google)

You could also use mod_rewrite, or go into apache's settings and change the root dir to /forums

Thanks though I did something else, I went into index.php and changed the url so when u write in www.Xc-Zone.net u get redirected to the forums so its pretty good, though now comes the issue with figuring out how to add a portal...
