I have added a domain name to my account and want to setup the phpBB forum for the added domain name. Is there a way of changing the file locations so that way the phpBB forum is put into my added domain file instead of my account domain file? If so how do I go about doing that?

If you are on WestHost 3.0 then there is no way to do this via the Site Manager. If you are on WestHost 4.0 (a new account in the last month or so) then there should be the option for you to install in the directory you want. Not sure about the particulars for 4.0 since I am still running on 3.0 but it should be in the the documentation for 4.0.

That being said, in West Host 3.0 you have the option to download phpBB from the phpBB site and installing it that way. Visit http://www.phpbb.com/ for the current download and information on installing it manually. Here is the direct link to the installation info page. http://www.phpbb.com/support/documents.php?mode=install&version=3

You could just download PHPBB from their website and upload it wherever you want it with FTP. Then just install it by setting it up to point to your databases.
