We have our very first SilverStripe site, installed and pretty much ready to go live.
We decided we want everything at the root level in order to make nicer URLs -- mysite.com/contact vs. mysite.com/silverstripe/contact/
Can we just take the contents of the /silverstripe/ directory and pop them up to root? What files will we need to change? Will it mess up our access to other directories that live at root?
I couldn't find definite information elsewhere, and all the installation instructions specified using /silverstripe/ as the
Thanks in advance.

Did you end up find an answer to this?
I am having trouble deploying my site to root, while I have a number of other scripts in folders eg: /forum
currently I get:
There has been an error
The website server has not been able to respond to your request.
however I have the other scripts working fine.??
Currently I'm not sure that ss is even connecting to my database (I investigated this issue: http://open.silverstripe.org/ticket/2476 but is does not seem to be the answer since my table names are lowercase on both machines. local and dev)

The control for how silverstripe is presented is managed via the .htaccess.
There is a line in the .htaccess that reads;
This means that all requests that make it to main.php will be rewritten as
So basically, to be able to have Silverstripe answer on "/" you make the RewriteBase "/".
If you are sharing the webservers root folder with other things, you may need to put in a line to exclude certain paths from rewriting.
For example, if you have phpbb installed, you would put a line as follows, to exlude that directory from being included in the main rewrite rules;
Hope that helps
This line will come before the first RewriteConf in the .htaccess.

I 've moved my site to the root folder. The site works fine, just I can't locked me in. If I try it, I redirected to the "Not Found" page.
