I've just built my first SS website with my own theme and I'm ready to make it live. Unfortunately I have no idea which extra files I need apart from all the ones in the htdocs folder and which folder to put them in on the server? My host is net24 www.net24.co.nz
I've been using MAMP as a virtual server so can someone please tell me which folders I need from the MAMP folder.
There is a highlevel doc on publishing to a webserver at http://doc.silverstripe.org/recipes:publishing-to-web-server. On MAMP I normally installed SS in a subfolder in the htdocs folder (eg 'websitename'). When you publish to the live site you need to copy that whole websitename folder as well as the database.
You don't need to publish anything else than the folder you installed SS to. (Eg don't publish your MAMP configuration folders). Have a look at that wiki page for some more detailed instructions.
