Actually, I'm with Bernie on this... I have other subdomains that have their own folders on my domain and want to keep SilverStripe in a separate folder, but have the URL for my main "www" domain point to that folder easily... There has to be an easy way to do this and I'll be searching the forum further, but in case I don't find anything (and this post was right up front on the topic), what's the "real" answer to Bernie's query (no offence to Sticks' response)?
You could try creating a .htaccess file in your www directory and using mod_rewrite to direct requests to the SilverStripe folder. You might also need to edit the .htaccess file in the SilverStripe directory to make sure it keeps the '/silverstripe' out of the address bar.
This should help get you started: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/990392/htaccess-rewrite-to-redirect-root-url-to-subdirectory
Thanks Sticks (and thanks for not taking offence to my first post, it's always appreciated when someone helps out and your solution in your first post may have worked out of the box for Bernie)... that seems more thorough than other .htaccess "solutions" I came across that didn't work for me because of my other subdirectories that point to subdomains (they stopped working when the SilverStripe subdirectory started working)...
