Hi,

I hope this post goes here...I apologize if not.

I'm having an issue inside the CPanel Files Manager section. I am a novice at this so it took me quite some time to get my VBulletin software files inside the Files Manager section in CPanel to get my site up and going.

The problem I am having is that my main address for my domain's homepage is domain.com/home.

My issue with that is for some reason when I try to create a separate page (Like Terms of Use, etc.) it makes the domain domain.com/home/termsofuse. Is there a way that I can make it just be domain.com/termsofuse Or is there also a way that I can make the homepage just domain.com instead of the /home at the end? I'm fine with either way. I just want to be able to create separate subdomain pages in the site that are as such: domain.com/termsofuse or domain.com/faq instead of having home/ smashed in there in between them.

I have my VBulletin folder titled as home inside the Public_HTML folder which I understand is what my webpage directs to, so if I changed the name to forum I'm assuming if I went to domain.com/forum it would work. Is there a way to just make this domain.com?

Or like as stated earlier, is there a way to just get rid of the /home inbetween my URL so I can have domain.com/termsofuse when I create that page? Because right now it is as follows: domain.com/home/termsofuse.

Thanks in advanced for the help

This is more of a vBulletin question for the vBulletin support forums.

Short of that, your forums appears to be installed in public_html/home/ (or, domain.com/home/ the same thing). If you want the forum in public_html/ (or, domain.com) you'll need to install the forums there, or move it there.

There are plenty of threads on the vBulletin forums to help with that.

I am a novice at this so it took me quite some time to get my VBulletin software files inside the Files Manager section in CPanel to get my site up and going.
Tip for you: you can upload the full vBulletin zip file to your account, outside of public_html, for example, home/username/workroom/ (you'd need to create workroom directory) and then extract the zip file on the server using the options in cPanel File Manager. Once you do, move the contents of the /upload/ directory to public_html/. You can drag and drop them all easy enough using the cPanel File Manager.

The whole process should take about 2 minutes. This is good to know as you'll be uploading updates to the forums over time and need to know how to get it done quick-er. :)

GL!
