Installing Php-nuke To Site Root


Recommended Posts

I want to install PHP-Nuke to my site's root (http://rightreadingroom.com). But when I try to use the installer in cPanel it makes me input a subfolder name (e.g., http://rightreadingroom.com/PHP-Nuke).

 

I read the comments on another post ("How can I make Php-Nuke my main site?" and by the way, I had to read this via google, the actual post link in your forum did not work). And I tried using both a "\" and "/" but in each case cPanel returned errors:

 

Invalid url (\).. please try agin

Error: /home/hcxxfscu/public_html// already exists

 

I don't want to use a "redirect" because then all of the posts for the site will include the phpNuke subfolder (http://rightreadingroom.com/PHP-Nuke/<article name>), won't they??

 

I wouldn't mind installing PHP-Nuke to a subfolder IFF I knew I could set up the actual public phpNuke site (and the sites main "index.php") on my root, with posts being in a sub-folder structure of my choosing (e.g., "../archives/<post name>").

That is one of the reasons I dont use the cPanel installer for everything. When I install as root, I get it from Nuke's main site. Install in a sub folder and you have to make changes to some files to compensate if you them move everything to root by hand.

Okay, got it :goof:

 

Was hoping to enjoy the ease of cPanel, but will pursue the manual install. :)
