    After install moving SS from root to a subfolder ? Link to this post

    Hello, I tried this morning to move my local SS installation to a pseudo staging env on a live server. I installed ss for a root installation. Now I need to move it in a sub folder to simulate a staging site. I cant create a subdomain because the hoster doesnt want to offer this service without charging me 350 dollars (retarded!). So my ideas was, why not moving it in sub folder under the root -> like domain.com/staging/

    What I have done is I changed the htaccess

    RewriteBase /staging/

    then I changed the mysite/_config.php


    that should do the trick and works so far for the normal website perfect. But when i want to access the admin the login form wont direct me to the cms. It ends up again and again on the login page without any error or validation error. Does anyone has an idea what I need to do to get the cms working ?

    THX in advance Thomas


    dont put setBaseURL in the _config, just change the htaccess and it works like charm (Fixed)
