When we first purchase vBulletin, we are approached with the question of where to install vBulletin.

Should we install files in root folder or install vBulletin onto it's own folder--such as "forums"? What is the better option? To me, there is no "better option" but, I will try to lead you into the direction that I believe is the "best option". Hopefully, it will help you in determing where to upload your vBulletin files.

LET'S GET STARTED

Which URL do you prefer?

FORUM
1)__ domain.com/forum.php
2)__ domain.com/forum/index.php
GALLERY
1)__ domain.com/gallery.php
2)__ domain.com/gallery/index.php
BLOG
1)__ domain.com/blog.php
2)__ domain.com/blog/index.php
HELP DESK
1)__ domain.com/helpdesk.php
2)__ domain.com/helpdesk/index.php
If you prefer option 1; I suggest you install vbulletin in root.

MY OPINION AND TIPS TO YOU:
  1. Install in root
  2. Learn everything about vBulletin...
    even if you are not a programmer learn everything about vBulletin's functions and features; read all available vBulletin articles; learn who the key vBulletin coders and designer are, etc
  3. Do not install 3rd party applications that are it's own entity*. eg. PhotoPost, Drupal ...


WORK IS TIME; AND, TIME IS MONEY.
3RD-PARTY APPLICATIONS* INCREASES WORKLOAD

I say this with experience. It may not seem that it adds to your workload at first; but, over time your workload will increase.
Here's something to think about:
  • Installation and Updates are required on all applications
  • Learning interface application is required to run application optimally.
  • You may have to hire more than one coder to help you out on numerous request - therefore, increasing your risk
  • To run the applications optimally, it is best to read latest news/threads and/or visit site regarding application at least on a bi-monthly basis -- if you have a few apps installed this can be time-consuming.
  • In some cases, complete integration is not available and application must be hacked. Which in turn -- requires more time since you have to "track all your hacks".
* applications that have their own interface; and, different style of coding --not similar to vBulletin
