I tried to move my forum (www.ddscart.org/ddscartforum/default.aspx) from the subdirectory, as installed by GoDaddy, to my root directory.

I looked through the files and found addresses that needed to be changed in "web.config" and "default.aspx. I had to remove "ddscartforum" from the address. I also backed up and then deleted the ddscartfourm subdirectory to stop multiple forum problems.

When I loaded www.ddscart.org, I recieved a "Server Error in Application" error.

"The directory '/App_Code/' is not allowed because the application is precompiled".

The stack trace can be seen if you goto www.ddscart.org.

I would like to have my forum come up when someone goes to www.ddscart.org instead of www.ddscart.org/ddscartforum/. Can I move the forum to my root directory?

My forum uses version 1.9.1.8 (NET v2.0). Don't get long winded if the app will need to be re-compiled, just say so and I will move on! I cannot do the compiling if needed.

Thanks ddscart

I went to the server and changed the App_Code directory to something else. In effect, deleting the directory. All works well now!

That makes me wonder what the App_Code directory is for, will not having it mess something up?

I also see I can have more than one forum as long as each is in a differant directory!

Thanks ddscart

Hi

You can store source code in the App_Code folder, and it will be automatically compiled at run time. The resulting assembly is accessible to any other code in the Web application. The App_Code folder therefore works much like the Bin folder, except that you can store source code in it instead of compiled code.So if you have compiled DLLs in Bin then it is OK.

And why not just a simple redirect page?

Not true!! Any change made in one forum will change the other forum as well!

My main page had a redirect to the forum sub-directory. That plays games for SEO.

I stoped the re-direct so the page could be indexed fully. This however, does not index the forum directory. the forum is what I want indexed! With the forum on the main directory, the search bots will do what I want.

If you Goggle "disabled dachshund" I am #3 on the first page. Not at all bad, but I want #1 on first page! the forum is linked on the main page, but does not add anything to the indexing. With a re-direct, I fall back 2 or 3 pages.

I also see that moving the directory lost all the smilies graphics. Maybe a directory change is needed there too!

The image directory failed to copy to the new directory as a image directory was already there. I combined the files and all works well!

Any html changes I make will affect only the one forum. Any changes made IN YAF will affect both forums. I assume that is because both point to the same database.

Now if I delete the unwanted forum directory, links on other sites to a certain post will be broken. I don't want that so I have to leave the old directory in place.

Hey guys, since I have move the forum to my main directory this morning, both Google and Yahoo bots are slamming my site!

Page changes mean something to the bots and they are seeing the changes big time now! Before the main page didn't change but every blue moon. Now it will change the index on every post!

#1 on the first page is a real possibility now!

Edited

Now #1 on page one on Goggle!!

What a differance!!!

Thanks for the info. I need to look and see if any of the code that was there affects the forum now in a new directory without the code. Thanks man!
