Could someone explain the consequences of both installation methods?
Using the C5 folder method, I haven't been successful in hiding the C5 folder, but that may be my ignorance. The path info is located in config/site.php (and at install).
IE: C5 installed a t /www.mysite.org/c5/c5_files
But website visitors would only see:
User 'Andrew' has (I guess) addressed the issue of hiding the subdirectory in his reply to one of my other posts, reproduced here:
It should be as easy as this

1. Export and backup the database.
2. Transfer the files from the current server to the new server.
3. Modify config/site.php in this way:
Change BASE_URL to the new base domain of the new server
If the site is not at the root of the domain, change DIR_REL to be the path to the c5 install.
So, if you're site is athttp://www.mydomain.com/
you want BASE_URL = "http://www.mydomain.com"
and DIR_REL to be blank.
If your site is athttp://www.mydomain.com/c5/ you want it to say
DIR_REL = "/c5"
That's all you should have to do. Links should be automatically generated correctly to your updated domain.
yes you should be able to put your concrete stuff anywhere in your directory structure you want if you update the DIR_REL parameter in /config/site.php
if the question is "how do i centralize a concrete5 install so i can run multiple sites off of one set of core files" thats a problem we address in a whitepaper our hosting partners get access to:
here's how it works...
1. let's say you want c5 to run inhttp://www.mysite.com/c5. within that dir, create symlinks to the following files (where ever else they may be on the server...they can be anywhere):
2. create true (non-symlinked) "files" and "config" directories and make sure they're writable.
3. create your database and then run the install.
you can do this in any directory on your site, and each installation will run off of a core set of application files, but they will each have their own independent installation.
Concrete5 is installed in folder concrete. there is also another concrete subfolder under this
I have a subdirectory 'Concrete' which the user should not see.
In config\site.php I have the following code
But I still see concrete in the Url
But If I type inhttp://www.domain.com/webpage the pages are redirected correctly
Any ideas how to fix it please? Could you please send me the site.php
Otherwise Concrete5 is fantastic :)
I thought I could atleast rename the concrete folder name. Can anybody let me know the list of files I need to change to rename the Concrete folder. I tried renaming the folder and then changing .htaccess, Site.php, Index.php
I seem to be missing some files. Could anybody help please.
