    http://www.tbmotoring.ca/blog.php (BLOG)

    http://www.tbmotoring.ca/content.php (CMS)

    When I type www.tbmotoring.ca into my browser it brings me to the HOME aka http://www.tbmotoring.ca/content.php

    I did not upload any of the do_not_upload files or change anything in the AdminCP this is just a fresh instal of 4.1.7

    This works fine for me.

    Then again, I guess I'm not using a subdirectory.

    I had already uploaded my forum and the structure was:

    www.*****.com/forum/forums etc

    I moved everything to the root directory on the server using ftp and everything seems to be working correctly so far...hopefully I haven't wrecked anything else.


    The structure now:

    www.****.com/forum
    www.****.com/blog
    www.****.com/content (also on home page - www.****.com which was set in admin cp)

    I really don't understand this. Can I clarify this?

    the "contents" in the upload folder should be uploaded to the host server/public html/
    the "4 folders": blog, cms, forum, rewrite to be uploaded into the host server/public html/forum

    am i doing this right?

    4.1.11, upgrade from forum to publishing suit.

    I updated the original post to highlight that these are for earlier versions of vB only - sorry, forgot to post here to advise...

    The OP's method is no longer valid. Can a vB staff member please update the first post.

    I'm starting a new forum (tbmotoring.ca) with a fresh copy of vB 4.1.7 . I would like install the CMS in Root and Forums in a subdirectory so my home page is the CMS and my URL's are like this:

    http://www.tbmotoring.ca (CMS)


    http://www.tbmotoring.ca/forum/forum.php (FORUM)

    I have already created a new folder in '/home/sitename/public_html' called 'forum'

    Should I upload the vB Suite files to '/home/sitename/public_html/forums/' or do I do it a different way? What other steps are required?
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    I submitted a trouble ticket and got this response back:

    Hi Marc.

    What I'd recommend is:

    - upload all files to your root directory and run the installer
    - then upload the contents of the 'do_not_upload/forum' directory in the ZIP file to the 'forums' folder on your server
    - update the URLs in AdminCP > Settings > Options > Site Name / URL / Contact Details

    You should be fine after this.

    Best regards,

    Would a vB staff member please updated the first post in this thread with the current information? Thank you. (I will attempt this way tomorrow and let you know)

    I'd love someone to actually show me how to make a default 4.1.7 system work with CMS at the top/root of the domain. Neither the "old" way of doing it, nor the instructions, work on my system. I haven't even modified the system at this point, so this is the default template/style, no add-ons or plug-ins. Nothing. I can get the CMS to run in the root, but i get the problem with the popup window. Constantly.

    And for the previous post: The method in the first post is inaccurate, as there is no such thing as "CMS Site URL" to populate and it says to leave one thing blank, which is not allowed. So no, it does not "work" even though it sort of works.

    Frustrating.

    So does the method shown in post #1 of this thread still work for vB 4.1.7?

    If not, can you please update it.

    The FAQ article, while quite helpful, is broken now and should be modified.

    1) It is no longer necessary to populate the files in the root, as noted by the new documentation.
    2) The FAQ references "CMS URL:" but there is no "CMS URL:" setting anymore in 4.1.7
    3) The FAQ says to leave "Site Tab URL:" blank, but 4.1.7 requires a setting here, and says "this should never be left blank"

    I have installed a clean, unmodified system, completely default, and I cannot get this to work with VB 4.1.7. While I can get the CMS to the front page, I get
    Your submission could not be processed because you have logged in since the previous page was loaded.
    after logging in on the main CMS page.

    I am willing to work with VB Support on this, PM me and I'll give you the URL to the site.

    I have reproduced this with 3 different browsers (Safari, Chrome, Firefox). I have cleared all browsing data and cookies on two of those just to make sure I wasn't caching my problem.

    Hm, I've followed the guide and cannot get this to work.

    The forums are fine, but when I put in the base domain I eventually get a 500 internal server error. Any ideas?

    SEO friendly?

    New comer here. Greetings.

    I am building up a new VB CMS (4.1.5) site and used the method mentioned here and it worked perfectly. Currently my website looks really bad as I am new and using my first installation as a testing platform. Once I am comfortable, I will install from scratch.

    I wanted to ask if this approach is SEO friendly? And will it cause problems while I am upgrading to a new build in future?
