I followed a tutorial and installed php, mysql, phpmyadmin, and then e107. Everything works good, except for the address. To access my site, i have to put in /e107 after the address in my browser. Could someone please tell me how to change this? Please dont tell me i have to reinstall everything lol. Thanks in advance.

I used to use e107 for everything. Now I see it as being rather hideous. But anyway, this isn't about me, but rather you. I believe you can reconfigure the directory within the configuration and then manually move the files to the root of the web server. But I have forgotten how! Either that or add an alias!



Yup. I work in 800x600.

^or instead of having e107 in a folder(e107) you could just put it all in the root folder(htdocs)

i read your post i just didnt understand it lol...thank u for the the reply, i do appreciate it. I am learning all of this. I dont understand much about putting up a website. I am trying to follow step by step tutorials but everyone seems different for setting up...I followed the e107 tutorial from here http://www.trustabyss.com/ but when i get a site up, people cant register. The registration page wont let people get past the are you 13 years of age or older page, it just keeps repeating lol...Learning as i go so please dont think i ignored your post tom, i did appreciate it.

when you moved the e107 out of the e107 folder to the htdocs folder did you reinstall it then or just moved the files from one folder to the other cause maybe its still trying to access /e107

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

What mail server do you plan to use? hMailServer is probably the most recommended. I use Mercury/32 myself. A simple Google would point you the sites and you could probably search for a tutorial to get yourself off the ground :)
