I had the same issues at first. I initially had all of the files from the typo archive within www.mydomain.com/ and it only worked, like you mentioned, when i had the server/script running via a port number.
I changed my web directory from /home/username/mydomain to /home/username/public
I'm still not convinced that everything is setup correctly so if you or anyone else has advice feel free to share.
Some things I'm unsure of:
- do we need to change the path to ruby in dispatch.fcgi and dispatch.rb ?
- The docs page on typosphere.org mentions that there are different instructions for installing/enabling FastCGI... not sure what those are or if I just need to check the box in control panel.
- What's the "correct" file and domain structure? I've seen a number of things mentioned like sym links to the public folder, installing in sub-folders, using sub-domains etc. I just want to install to www.mydomain.com if possible.
- I never came across any "install" process nor the migrate procedure... what's the deal?
Let's work to figure this out.
