I recently installed silverstripe at a new hosting service. Since we were not ready to point our existing domain name to the new service I installed it using the temp URL, something like www.newhost.com/~username. Now after we put in all the content and pointed our domain to it, the URLs of the menus/tabs are www.mydomain.com/~username/pagename. Furthermore, the admin page is accessible only through www.mydomain.com/~username/admin/. How can I configure it so that there is no ~username in the URL?

Thanks for your help.

deer421, you'll need to edit the .htaccess file, it will have been setup for your temp URL.
