I have SilverStripe installed at the top level of my site/server. I would like to move it... and the site built with it... under a folder/directory. So now the site I build will be under http://www.MYDOMAIN.com/FOLDER/

Is this easy to do? Can I simply drag the files into the folder? How will this affect the database that is associated with SilverStripe?

What steps do I need to take/follow to have my SilverStripe site moved into its own directory?

You need to move all files (including .htaccess) into the subfolder.

You may also need to edit .htaccess to change the RewriteBase.

Then do a db/build?flush=1 and it should work.

What would I change it to?

Also, will the database still link up when I change the location of SilverStripe?

I'm guessing that at the moment, it's /. You'll need to change it to /FOLDER/.

The database will still link up, but some of the manifest files may not, hence why you'll need to run http://www.mydomain.com/FOLDER/db/build?flush=1
