change the 5 to a 0 to make the redirect instant.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but if you want portal.php to be the home page for your site, you can do this in your htaccess file and it should be even faster. If that's what you want, let me know.
ok, do you use a .htaccess file? if you do, simply add this line, if you don't, then create a text file, rename it htaccess.txt and open it up.

Add this line:

DirectoryIndex portal.php

upload the txt file to your server, and now rename it to .htaccess

now try it, it should automatically redirect without any messages. :)
did you upload it in the main directory for your website (public_html)?

and what exactly is the screen shot showing?
So I'm assuming your host doesn't allow you to use .htaccess. I have no idea why.

Why don't you try renaming portal.php to index.php, and rename index.html to backup.html or anything like that.

then browse around your forum and see if your forum is still working correctly.
