Hi There,
Have spent a couple of hours scanning the forums and trying out solutions with no luck. SilverStripe is installed in a sub-directory, now it is launch time, so I planned to just change the .htaccess file. This works, but the the site links still use the sub-directory in their urls.

Site is installed in /site09/

.htaccess in /site09/ folder is the following:
### SILVERSTRIPE START ###
<Files *.ss>
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from 127.0.0.1
</Files>

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif$)|(\.jpg$)|(\.png$)|(\.css$)|(\.js$)|(\.php$)

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
</IfModule>
### SILVERSTRIPE END ###

.htaccess file in root folder (public_html) is:
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ site09/$1
</IfModule>

This worked on another server, but not in this instance.

Have also tried to force the base url in the /mysites/configuration file but this has knock on effects like not being able to log into the CMS admin.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

Thanks
Duncan
