How do i make it so people actually have to go to the website address to get on the board? I looked for articles to explain how to but have come across nothing....

but when you enter that it takes you to
the index that shows files

I dont know how to make it our actual forum?

You need a index.html or index.php or index.shtml to have a normal page in your root dir.

If a index page is missing from that dir, the dir & file structure will be displayed instead.

As YT pointed out, you can move your forums to your public_html folder instead of the forum folder.

Put that code in the index file.

Make it on your puter and upload it.

If there was one already on the server in that directory, you wouldnt be getting the file dir layout.
