1. Create a new folder in your /public_html called /forum-newThere are two ways to do this and most items, SSH or SFTP, where available I will outline both methods. a. Create the new folder via SSH by running the following command.

  • navigate to your public_html directory by doing the following "cd /home/username/domains/domain.com/public_html" then press enter
  • Then do the following "mkdir forum-new
b. Create the new folder via SFTP (I recommend winscp)
  • Once logged in, scroll down to the bottom of your public_html directory and right click in an open area and select "New" then select "folder"

2. Copy all existing files from /forum to /forum-newa. SSH - while in your public_html folder run this command "cp -r forum forum-new"b. SFTP - Open the /forum folder, select CRTL + A to select all contents, right click on top of your selection and select "Duplicate" this will open a location to duplicate it too - enter the forum-new folder for the location, it will look like this for the whole path /home/username/domains/domain.com/public_html/forum-new
