Tried to move photopost to a new folder, can't get into the control panel
UPDATE: I got the control panel to work now.
Ok, here's what happened. I tried moving the folder, and it gave me some errors so I moved it back. I had a control panel problem, but I fixed it.
What I'm asking now is, how do I correctly change the photopost folder? When I installed it, I put it in /photopost. I want it to be installed in /somethingelse. When I first tried moving it, I just changed the URLs & Paths under Global Options, and then renamed the folder via FTP, but I got errors, so I rolled it back.

I need a little help. What I did was rename the folder whereI have vbulletin installed. For instance /grayhawk to /gsc. Inside of gsc is my gallery folder whereI have always had photopost installed before the folder rename.
Now that I renamed my forum folder and my cmps and forum work my gallery sort of works. All the photos as showing as links to the previous directory url before the folder rename. I edited both the config files and pointed them to the new url but it doesn't work. None of the links in my photopost admin panel work and they spit back a file not found. Also there are error messages at the top of the Admin CP:
Warning: opendir(/homepages/xx/xxxxxxxx/htdocs/magicalyears/grayhawk/gallery/data/) [function.opendir]: failed to open dir: No such file or directory in /homepages/xx/xxxxxx/htdocs/magicalyears/gsc/gallery/adm-inc.php on line 638
Warning: readdir(): supplied argument is not a valid Directory resource in /homepages/xx/xxxxx/htdocs/magicalyears/gsc/gallery/adm-inc.php on line 641
Warning: closedir(): supplied argument is not a valid Directory resource in /homepages/xx/xxxxxx/htdocs/magicalyears/gsc/gallery/adm-inc.php on line 658
So how can I rename my vb folder where my gallery is a sub folder where nothing has changed? What step am I missing?

Ok I seem to have solved my problem by being impatient. I edited my database and changed the photopost settings directly to reflect the folder name change. All works fine now so far as I can tell. Once I edited the database my photopost admin cp worked again. I then went to Storage Options and reset to default twice and saved.
Because I renamed the main VB folder and not the gallery folder the directions which are on this form for relocating the gallery didn't work in my case. I am not sure that in my case there was another way to solve my problem without directly editing the database. If there was I would like to know how to do this for the future.
