Hi !

When I unpack the archive in my root folder it creates another folder called "silverstripe_2.3" do I leave it there or do I have to move evrything inside the root folder so I dn't have to type

thank you

You can do an mv * .. which should bring everything up a level. I'm not absolutely certain but do think that would do it, you may want to check for any mv command help online to be sure.

You would issue that command while in your silverstripe directory and it would move everything up one level - the asterisk means everything and the .. means up one level.

That's my two cents worth

If I leave ss in a directory called silverstripe it runs fine; but I have to put the in.
I need to be able to use
So I've tried moving everything up to document root level & I get a redirect loop.

Any ideas as to why this is happening & others have posted that moving everything to the root will work?
