Don't want to wipe the forum; what do I do?

I want to move the forum to "www.mysite.com/forum/" instead of "www.mysite.com/". I moved it, but then I noticed that all the links got messed up. How would I move it and keep the links working?
For example:
Right now, the forum is located in www.mysite.com/. I want to move the forum to www.mysite.com/forum/ without wiping it.

So you have some threads with the links /forum?

First of all:
Go in the admin cp and set the new path of the forum.
This should work.
Now if u have linked the threads and there are many of them so u can't do it manually just do this:
Export the database.
Download and open Notepad++
Open the exportation.
Click CTRL + F
There's a feature that lets u sobstituite the words.
so write www.mysite.com/forum and sobstitute all with www.mysite.com/

This worked with me

After you moved it, did you ensure you have changed the forum configurations from:

www.mysite.com/ ?

It should work just fine if you did just that.
