Incorrect path/URL when using Admin tools


Recommended Posts

I installed osC on my ISP's server. My domain is jet-set-art.com. However, I installed it into a subdirectory called "store."


Thus, the path to the files is jet-set-art.com/store/catalog/...


Now, I can get to the admin/index.php page, but when I click on an option it takes me to a "page not found" error.


The path it's using by default is something like:




I can add to the path name manually so it's now:




and this works--at least to get me to the My Store page.


The problem comes when I try to make any changes or updates (e.g., store owner, etc.). I can't make the updates because it's not going to the correct page (again, it's lacking the store/catalog/ in the path.


Have I made a mistake in installing it into the "store" subdirectory? Does osC need to be in the root directory? I've got other files in the root (my web site) and I am merely installing osC to test it on a live server, I don't necessarily need/want it to be all there is on my web site.


Any advice or help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks.
