    mysite.com/silverstripe/ Link to this post

    Hi, I have created a site locally and have now installed silverstripe on the web server successfully, i don't want the site to have a url that is /silverstripe/xxx should this be addressed before I begin to move over my local site as per the documentation on uploading to a web server?

    Many thanks

    Hi Silverfox,

    I like Silverstripe b/c it is relatively easy to strip out that leading directory. It should be as simple as changing the .htaccess file to point to your root directory of your domain. Of course you want to move all your files & folders into the root directory (out of your current nested "silverstripe" folder.

    In your htaccess file (around line 14) you currently would have:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /Silverstripe-TwoFour

    just switch that up to be simply

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
