My web address ends with /elgg/


#1

Hi, I know that because I have the elgg directory placed in my root directory that is why my web address includes /elgg/ in it. That is what Dreamhost told me anyway. If I try to put elgg files in the root directory…mydomainname.com/ when running index.php i get tons of errors. What could be stopping elgg from installing just because I placed all the files in the root directory? Thanks for your help in advance.

we need a little bit more information to give you constructive answers. for starters telling us your domain name would be a plus.

all i can do is really guess. if you have installed elgg initially to yourdomain.com/elgg whatever configuration files that were set up would be referencing yourdomain.com/elgg. if you have moved that folder to a different location other than where you initially installed it, you would have to alter any configuration files with the correct path of where it is now.

Hi and thanks for your response. I initially installed elgg into youbecast.com/elgg but when I noticed that my web address ended with /elgg I started all over from scratch. I extracted elgg then moved all the files from the elgg folder to my root directory youbecast.com. When I run the install http://youbecast.com/index.php I get alot of errors. It does make sense that the config. files needs to be changed but I am new to this and wouldn’t know exactly which files I need to edit. Would there only be just the config.php file or are there more files as well?

Thanks.

Looking at youbecast.com shows a listing of the files you have. i went to youbecast.com/elgg and it has a default page for installing. from what i can see there is a settings.php file that would need to be created. you are supposed to have a /engine directory with a file in it settings.example.php and you are to rename that file to just settings.php

i am not showing you have moved any files/subdirectories that were in /elgg to your root youbecast.com folder or i would have seen the default install page there. also, did you already set up your mysql database? you will need one for this software.

Oh sorry about that I did have the files there but changed it so that I could move forward with learning how to design the site. Here is what I did. I have extracted and moved all the files in the elgg folder to the youbecast.com directory. I chmoded engine folder and renamed settings.example.php to settings.php. I also edited settings.php with my db user name, password, db name and host name which is “youbecast3” I am aware that it is not “localhost” and dbprefix I put “elgg”. I did have mysql databases set up previously as well. After doing that these are the errors I get after pointing my browser to http://youbecast.com/index.php There were a number of issues: Incorrect table name ‘youbecast.comconfig’ QUERY: CREATE TABLE youbecast.comconfig (

OMG! It worked! Thanks so much for your help! I went back and reread what you said about typing in “www.youbecast.com” and did that and it worked this time. I was under the impression I still had to type http://youbecast.com/index.php. Thanks again!


#7

i’m glad you got it working

its always fun to play around with a new content management system. i had not heard of elgg before today. i use drupal for most of my sites but i might have to play around with elgg for research purposes :slight_smile:

Yes! Me too thanks! It is alot of fun but if you’re a newbie and have never done any of this before it can also be frustrating. lol. I just learned of elgg a few weeks back when I decided I wanted to build my own site. I have installed it once but in the wrong directory and had some time to play with it and it is pretty simple after you get it installed.

Thanks again for your help and Happy Holidays!
