I want to do the one-click install of a forum (phpBB) to my website hosted
here at Dreamhost. As I begin the one-click install,
I am asked to select one of my domains. The choice I want to make is there, http://www.priscillanhk.com (though I don’t need or use the “www” part; ie I simply use http://priscillanhk.com).
There is a caution statement below the domain selection boxes,
which says “be sure there are no files there now”. This is what has me concerned because my entire website - all the html files and subdirectories are under http://priscillanhk.com. I don’t want to accidentally cause everything to get written over and lost.
I am GUESSING that the answer to my second question will resolve
my concerns …
There is a second box on the same line as the domain name
and there is a slash / between the first and second box. I am GUESSING that I need to put something in that box, which will then become the subdirectory where the one-click install phpBB files will all go. So should I just enter something like “forum” in that box after the slash? And if I do that will all the phpBB go into
http://priscillanhk.com/forum and it won’t clobber - write over -
all my html pages and such in my main directory (priscillanhk.com)?
I think I understand it correctly - but I just want to make sure, that’s all.
