Site Root Directory
« on: September 02, 2009, 10:53:41 pm »
Hi,

I have installed Opengoo on my laptop running a IIS personal.  I have a directory:

c:\sites\opengoo

Where I have installed the application.
My question is regarding the location of the root directory for the site.  In IIS I have setup the site root directory as c:\sites\opengoo\public which works but I had to copy a few files around to get it working.

I am wondering is this correct or should I have had my root directory as
c:\sites\opengoo

TTIA,
  JC

Public isn't the root, so you'll have to go to c:\sites\opengoo\ :)

So what is the point of the public directory if the web root directory is the opengoo directory ?

In public there are certain tools installed, like the install, upgrade, translationtool, FCKeditor etc.

Thanks for the replies,

Let me start by saying I think opengoo is great.  That said I am still a bit confussed as to why the need for a public directory.  If the root directory is opengoo then surely this is a public directory ?
