Hi I've just started using wpForo on our website, but I need to activate it on our staging (live development website) to test changes etc before going live. We use a staging website plugin that duplicates our entire website into a local subfolder on the website for testing. All other plugins work correctly.

wpForo is unable to be found (gives a 404 Not Found error), even though the forum base-url is updated to the new location.

How do I point wpForo to the correct (duplicated) copy of it's database?
