I'm considering doing the same thing (but changing "/photopost" to just "/photos"). I just want to confirm a few things since I don't want to break anything.
(per the steps you outlined above...)
1. So I go to the "Global Options" page and change the path everywhere on that page (looks like it's in 5 places: URL to PhotoPost data directory, Full SERVER PATH to PhotoPost data directory, URL to PhotoPost PHP directory, URL to PhotoPost images directory, URL to UPLOADS directory?
), right? At this point, are you saying that I will receive a 'not found' error when I save the changes, but it's okay...? To go ahead and proceed to step 2?
2. Next I should open config-inc.php and modify $PP_PATH to point to "/photos". Save and FTP to my server, correct? Do I also need to modify config-int.php ($pppath, $url_path and $data_dir fields)?
3. Next, I should rename "/photopost" to "/photos".... If I rename (as opposed to move), do I need to worry about permissions?
In addition, I have one more question. Since several people have linked (in the forums) to these photos, can I update their forum posts quickly in the database or do I have to edit each of their posts individually (through moderation)? (I'd ideally like to run a sql query for anything with "/photopost/"... I can manually update each record from there; I just don't know the vb
schema yet). Or is this a question I should ask on the vb
