I've been stuggling with this one for ages, but I really need to get started on it.
My personal site is currently hosted on a shared/hosted windows server and has two 'halves': the 'Information' half and the 'Forums' half.
I've successfully converted the 'Information' half to PHP and the 'forums' half is ASP-driven (running a heavily customized Snitz forums install)
I want to move the site to alternative hosting, BUT, if I lose any of the URL structure of the 'Forums' half (e.g. by using another forum package, or changing it to a subdomain etc.) the site will probably be boned in terms of SEO), as the forums are the major traffic draw and about 90% reason for the success of the site.
I guess I'm looking for ideas on how to split the site so that the 'information' half is hosted on one package and the /forums/ part remains on the old windows server? Is that even possible?
