|Ok, I've looked it up and it is, indeed, very simple.|
At the moment all forum posts are available and accessable at
To fix all (broken) URLs linking to the old forum we just need the following 2 lines:
code for .htaccess to redicrect /sahforum to /sahforum2
Redirect /sahforum http://starsautohost.org/sahforum2
With those 2 lines every link to the old forum gets automatically redirected to the new temporary forum.
In the base directory of http://starsautohost.org/ there is probably a file called ".htaccess". Just place the above 2 lines into it and upload it. If there is no file called ".htaccess", just create one.

Sigh, was supposed to be temporary. There is one more minor upgrade to the forum software that I need to do, but it's been a year already... The URL change was to help preserve a backup of the older version of the forum files and database if needed.
If you are done with that, we'll have the problem that all new links to /sahforum2 get broken. We can solve this as easily as before. Just replace the above 2 lines with the following:
code for .htaccess to redicrect /sahforum2 to /sahforum
Redirect permanent /sahforum2 http://starsautohost.org/sahforum
This way all links are working at all times, wether they use /sahforum or sahforum2.
