Well why installing phpBB3 in the forum/ dir if you do not want to use the root level ?

You could use an HTTP 301 redirect in .htaccess to do what you want, but it's probably better to start using your domain's root a bit more.
You could build pages there, presenting you site and linking to your forum index.

Anyway, in your root's .htaccess, you could add :
Code: Select all
RewriteRule ^/?$ /forum/index.php [R=301,L]

after :
Code: Select all
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /

Should do it for what you originally want.
