On my webserver I can run 2 websites. So I created on my webserver 2 directories for each website. Let us call them "webpage1" and "webpage2".
The webpage1 I wanna run with Silverstripe. So I installed Silverstripe in directory "webpage1". In the driectory "webpage1" is now the directory "silverstripe" and the other directories like "sapphire" and so on.
I can work with the CMS, but when I wanna call the webpage with: "" then I get an Error page HTTP 403"
Why I can't call my wepage ? should be silverstripe directly installed in the directory of my webpage ? Without the directory "silverstripe" ?


hope somebody understands my situation and can help me.

Thanks a lot,

Which directory will be used to serve the pages when you access your site in your browser with ?

In that directory you have your stuff directly, without containing all in a silverstripe or whatever directory.

Move the contents of the silverstripe directory into webpage1 directory.

I have a similar setup but could not work out how to move my original website from its public_html folder my other website is in a directory called thebrumbyshop.
