Read the topic about moving the host but, I need a simple operation thats why want to ask.
I want to move SS inside my host. Just switching folder. Same installation same server and same template. Just a folder switch.
Now it is installed in public_html/cms folder.
I want to move it to the root public_html folder to have benefits of short URL's Like www.mysite.com/files etc.
What should I do? Need to dump and restore database? Just moving files is enough? Or?
The facts that I know.
* I'll had to edit all the links point to pages under my site.
* Also need to edit gallery and download file locations.
* Edit the .htaccess file "RewriteBase /cms" to "RewriteBase" (please confirm that this is true, Im not sore what to write for root)
What should I do more?
And will it effect stability for usage or adding modules etc?
I dont like, even hate to write this kind of out of topic words, and avoid to do. But now I had to.
Isnt there anyone that knows the answer of this?
Sure there is... What did I make wrong to wait 6 days for an answer for this simple queston?
My first topic was under another question about moving site, it was about moving from localhost to server. I wait some and think that asking under closed topic is wrong then keep moving under this topic.
My site is waiting broken for a week. I love SS but now I'm repent.
But I dont want to make an another CMS move cos my DB is already 60 MB altough with 40 empty waiting pages.
But please I want to know what will happen? If there is no change tell me that nobody will answer you so ok I'll move.
Just saw this post as I had the same problem. I moved all the files to the root directory folder (in my case it was mainwebsite_html). I then went into the .htaccess file and changed the following line:
And the website could then be accessed from the web address (eg www.yourwebsite.com) without having to add the /silverstripe-v2.2.2 onto the address to access the website.
Hope that helps anyone in the future as it worked for me.
