Hi There,

I have tried moving the forum files into it's own directory but I am failing to get it to work.
My original setup was to have the forum in a root directory called "TestForum". It works fine. I have now moved it to "TestForum/yaf" now it does not work. I have looked at the documentation but it is a bit hard to follow.
It mentions something about <root>/yaf</root> but I get errors when I add this to web.config. Does anyone have a web.config I can see for me to addapt to what I need or a more friendly documentation to follow.

Your help is appreciated.

Best Regards,

From instal.txt


If isn't installed at the root of your web
server, make sure the files in the bin directory of the zip file
is copied to /bin on your web server. Also you'll need to add the
<root> element to the yafnet.config to point to the correct URL.
Example: If you have install the forum in the directory "/forum/yaf/"
you will need to add <root>/forum/yaf/</root> to web.config.

When I post FP:Mek in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting. (Yes I stole this off Ederon 🙂 )

Hi Mek,
Thanks for the reply.
That worked. I was putting <root>~/yaf</root> until I noticed in your post <root>/forum/yaf/</root> which actualy includes the root folder also.
I put <root>/testforum/yaf/</root> into yafnet.config and all is working well. Did not know where to put it in web.config!

Thanks for the help.

Best Regards,
