redirect to base URL

Permalink
I have concrete loaded in my directory at dreamhost like this:

sitename.com/concrete5.2.1/index.php

When I type sitename.com in a browser, I get 403 Forbidden. If I fully qualify sitename.com/concrete5.2.1 it works fine. I have read and reread and the concrete info says that it's supposed to redirect to the BASE_URL. The BASE_URL is correctly defined in my config/site.php file. Here are the two lines:

define('BASE_URL', 'http://sitename.com');
define('DIR_REL', '/concrete5.2.1');

What am I missing here? Why won't it work at my base url?

-----------------------

Never mind. This is my second forum post that I figured out the answer to myself. Okay, apparently I'm not that clear on how to use forums. I use them too quickly when I should just search more, try more, and ask less. Learning.......

Remember also this

define('REDIRECT_TO_BASE_URL', false);

And also to edit this:

define('BASE_URL', 'http://yoursitename.dk');

Hey, I'm pretty new here, think I have a similar question.

I'm thinking of installing Concrete5 into its own folder --> C5

And it would be on a subdomain : c5.sitename.com

So in order to access it from sitename.com (main domain), is this what I have to do?

define('BASE_URL', 'http://sitename.com');
define ('DIR_REL','/c5');

define('REDIRECT_TO_BASE_URL', false);


Is that all?
