Hi, I am new to this. Cheers
I have been playing with silverstripe. Pretty neat stuff.
I havn't contributed anything yet because I am still learning.
I wanted to run an additional custom made php software. It is a simple chat interface.
It gets its own upgrades from the developer. To pop the chat up it is a simple link.
Could be placed like a dataobject but I will integrate it into the custom modified theme I am making.
I don't need to integrate it into the CMS as it has its own back and that is ok.
what is the preferred directory to install it to.
I found a few suggestions like best to install under
execute under www.example.com/livechat/
execute under www.example.com/theme/livechat/
I could use another URL but for consistency I want to use the same base URL and SSL cert as the CMS
The reason for my question is I don't want the file to get included in a DEV/BUILD.
Or is there a way to install it in /chat and have silverstripe skip the folder.
Thanks for your help.

Welcome to the forums!
There are two ways to make sure silverstripe doesn't include the files...
1) do not put them in "known" silverstripe folder - this is one that is there in a default install or one with a _config.php in it
2) put a file named "_manifest_exclude" in the folder

i figured a non critical folder would be ok,
but the manifest exclude is really what i wanted to know.
Thank you so much for responding so quickly. Your solution worked.
I almost everything worked ok from the start or wasn't hard to get going with some small tweaking
