Moving The Location Of My Forums From A Folder To The Root Directory

I've currently got my forums set up in the /forums directory. I have an index.html redirect setup also.

The problem is, the index.html redirect is pretty slow. If I deleted the index.html file, then moved the folders from within the /forums directory to the main root directory, would this cause any problems?

Thanks to anyone who can help.

If you're moving the forum, you will probably have to adjust the config for the new path. This move will probably break any external links.

The forum's not open yet so I don't think external links will matter.

In config.php would I just change this:

$config['Misc']['forumpath'] = '/home/users/public_html/forums';

To this:

$config['Misc']['forumpath'] = '/home/users/public_html';

Thanks for your help man.

It is not necessary to set $config['Misc']['forumpath']. You should leave it as nothing ('') unless vBulletin asks you to set it.
