Homepage-simple question
« on: April 25, 2007, 08:04:15 PM »
Hi
My first 4 hrs using WebsiteBaker and can't tell you how awesome I think this is. I love it. I have a very simple question, bearing in mind my brain is now jelly. If the page files have to be contained within a folder named 'wb' how do I get my domain name ie.www.mysite.com to work around this without having to have my URL as www.mysite.com/wb to access the index page?

Kind regards
Martin(jelly brain)

Hello,

this can be reached if you place all files directly in the root of your server without the wb folder. Best time to do this is at installation. It's also possible to move an existing installation from the wb folder to the root and adapt the config.php. But i explicitly do not recommand this because ownerships and permissions of files and folders in WB are very important and moving files ond folders changes the ownerships wich causes then errors in WB. So as you are at the beginning maybe the best is to do a new clean install in the root after uninstalling the "old" version. For uninstalling WB please do the following: Delete all pages, delete all files from media dir, uninstall all modules wich you have manually installed and then remove all files with your ftpclient from the server.

I just create an index.html file in the root that automatically takes the visitor to the wb folder:
File contents:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0; URL=wb">
</head>
</html>

Hello,

as already mentioned by Matthias, WebsiteBaker does not need the wb folder. It is sufficient to upload all files and subfolders contained below wb into the root of your webserver. So if you are still playing around with WB, just delete the files in /wb and make a new install of WB into the root.
