Change Forum.Domain to domain.com/forum



  • Is it possible to change my current URL of forum.domain.com to domain.com/forum ?

    I have tried searching the forums as there is a wealth of information available, but I'm not sure what the tech term for this is :neutral_face:

    My current site is forum.matchedbettingforums.com

    However I have seo done for www.matchedbettingforums.com & if the url is forum.domain the SEO wont provide a boost for this & also I cannot upload sitemaps etc for my Webmaster tools.

    • Can I change the URL for where the Forum is located?

    thanks all :-)

    You want to switch from a subdomain (abcd.example.com) to a subfolder (example.com/abcd).

    Basic steps:

    1. Change config.json to reflect the new url
      "url": "http://forum.example.com" -> "url": "http://example.com/forum"
    2. Use nginx to reverse proxy requests by adding a new location block for /forum
