Hi it's Brian... Had the 532 page anonymous post for install help. Thanks again for all your speedy replies.

I have decided to move my geeklog up a notch to my main site, not just at /signup.

I was talking to Blaine about it. He said I'd have to change the paths in config.php etc... What steps and in what order would you do this? Which files will I have to move. Right now I have all the public_html files in the /signup directory and all the private ones in a passworded directory at the same level.

Thanks a lot!
Brian

If you can change your webroot (document root) and simply point it to your /signup directory, that would be the easiest solution. You would have to adjust $_CONF['site_url'].

Otherwise, you would have to move everything from within /signup one directory level up. Then find every reference to signup in config.php and remove it. The order in which you do that doesn't really matter.

bye, Dirk

Thanks Dirk...

I just thought of something that might be ridiculous, but when you do the install, don't you put all the public files into a directory anyway? So essentially, isn't my /signup folder where the /public_html folder would be anyway? When most people install this, how does the index file of their main site display GL if it's inside that folder? See what I'm saying?

Thanks

This is explained in the installation instructions. public_html is supposed to be your webroot, everything else should be outside of it and not accessible from the web, i.e. by typing a URL into your browser.
