Am not sure how to explain this properly so please be gentle.

i have installed SilverStripe in the public_html folder and renamed it 'silverstripe'. When I go to my website, eg contact us, it is showing:

How can I get rid of the silverstripe bit?

Thanks in advance.

You need to take everything from inside silverstripe/ and put it all a directory back, in public_html

If you have SSH access, you could login and go

sudo mv /var/www/public_html/silverstripe/* /var/www/public_html/
sudo mv /var/www/public_html/silverstripe/.htaccess /var/www/public_html/

(assuming your webroot is /var/www/public_html)

You will then need to edit your .htaccess file to remove the /silverstripe part of your domain name.

If you are new to all this, may be easier for you to delete everything, and just upload it again in to public_html instead of a folder inside public_html.
