I have installed SilverStripe into a subdirectory on my web server, and I want my domain name to go straight to SilverStripe so I can use other subdirectories for other domain names I am going to get in the future. I have successfully been able to point my main domain to the /silverstripe subdirectory, but the problem I have now is when I am browsing through my SilverStripe site it still has /silverstripe in the URL. I want to get rid of this.
When I click to say, the About Us page, the URL becomes
Is there a way to modify the .htaccess file to simply hide "/silverstripe" from the browser's URL bar?
Another approach might be to somehow modify SilverStripe's base URL, although I've read around the forums that people have run into problems with this approach.
This seems like it should be a very simple thing to do, but I spent hours yesterday Googling this to no avail. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
