I must apologise for how slow I am this morning. It feels like I need a holiday to recover from the weekend :) So I am sorry if my question makes no sense.
On opening the CMS, and entering into the Content> Meta Data tab, there is a a label of URL and underneath a textfield, of which only part is editable. The uneditable part contains www.yoursite.com/. The editable part is empty.
When I extract the Silverstripe folder on the server, it extracts to a folder called silverstripe-v2.2.1. Now, that is in direct conflict with the URL schema directly input through the CMS (as mentioned above). Does Silverstripe automatically deal with this?
Also, if I create a new folder, eg. CMS, in the public_html root, and place the tarball into the CMS folder, it then extracts out so that access to the CMS itself is akin to this: www.yoursite.com/CMS/silverstripe-v2.2.1/contact/.
I wouldn't want visitors to see such an ugly URI, I would much rather it appeared as suggested in the CMS itself, www.yoursite.com/contact/ .
Does Silverstripe handle this all by itself, or do I need to help it along with a mod_rewrite command?
