moving directories up a level

Recommended Posts

Hey, I am sick of looking at the catalog in my url. Can I just move all the files up a level to the root and change the config files? Will anything get messed up? My site is pretty close to being done and I don't want to skrew it up now.

 

Thanks for the help.

thanks for the help, worked like a charm. Had alittle problem with the chmoding the configure back but I had to take out the www to get it to work.

Hey I'd like to do the same thing, what do I change in the configure.php files to get this to work?

take out all instances of catalog.

 

On the lines where it is '/catalog/' make sure you leave a / so it would be '/'

When y'all move the catalog directory to the root, do you use your vdeck, cpanel what ever yours is called or do you use an FTP program.

 

I have been wanting to do this myself but I'm scared I will mess up what work I've done so far.

 

So a little detail explanation would be great so I won't be so scared.

 

Thanks bunches,

Shar :unsure:

Are you putting a NEW one in or just moving the one thats there now up a directory? If its the same one, just mve the files and change the config files.

If I have a website site up (that i am replacing with the new one), do I delete it before I move my catalog up? Or just leave it there?

 

Thanks,

Shar

your question is kinda confusing... you can leave it there, but so you don't get confused make sure you seperate the two... also you can't have the same filename.. such as index files

i have a website at www.mywebsite.com and also am building www.mywebsite.com/catalog. I want the /catalog to become my website. I want to do away with the other.

 

So it sounds like I need to delete the one before I move the other one up to the root directory.

 

Does that make sense?

 

Thanks,

Shar

yeah, I am going to run into the same issue..

 

from what I understand..

 

 

1. you can move the contents up one directory level.

 

2. you can create a redirect

 

3. you can create an invisible frame (not recommended)

well I tried what I thought was what I understood. I made the changes in both configure.php files. Now when I type www.rainphotography.com i get just a list of files. If I type www.rainphotography.com/catalog, i get my site that is ALL messed up. Please someone help me. I have now screwed this up.

 

Please what do you need from me to help me.

 

Shar :wacko: :o :huh: :angry:

well, you can't change the config files and NOT move the all the other stuff up a level. You have to do both.

 

This literally took my two minutes to accomplish.

1: I highlighted all my files and directories in the catalog folder and dragged them to the up arrow in wsftp to move them up a directory.

 

2: I changed the both the includes/configure.php and admin/includes/configure.php and took out all instances of catalog

 

3: Changed the permissions on both the configure files back to 444

 

4: Done!
