As long as you are using the same database you won't have to make any changes other than moving the vB files from one location to the other. The posts and members are contained in the database, not the files. If this is simply a directory name change, then you don't even have to do that. Just make sure you update the URL in you Admin CP.

what i meant was, i have 2 folders called forum and forum
forum contains my current php3 forum
forums is the new php forum.

i just want to move the members and posts to forums. i tried changing the forums folder to forum to see if the members automatically go there but nothing happened

You need to change the config.php file in forums/admin to use the database with the members and posts. Then update the URL in the admin CP to the new forums folder.
