    I have a slash in my vb_dir path at the end. Maybe this is the issue?

    Mine is: $vb_dir = "/home/vg008web06/92/16/2911692/web/tdforum/";

    Thank you for your answer.

    I shouldn't use 'root'. Referring to root i mean the "home" directory which is /name in this case. The directory stracture i describe is a test setup as my CMS home page will be in finally and my forums in

    Name is not the root of your site it seems? The root of your site would be placing the files in the www directory itself if I am reading your settings right.

    CMS in root directory in 4.1.1


    Okay, im trying to install CMS in my root directory and something is missing. I would like to ask for your help to understand what im doing wrong here.

    So my forum is installed in:

    and i want to install the CMS in

    I follow the instructions provided and heres what i do:

    I edited the vb_dir.php like this:

    //If you installed the cms directly as a subdirectory of 
    //vbulletin ( then you don't need to change this
    //file.  Otherwise comment out the first line, uncomment the second line,
    //and change the value to be the actual path to the vbulletin installation on
    //$vb_dir = realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/..');
    $vb_dir = "/home/www/";
    ...and uploaded it and the rest of the appropriate file from the CMS do not upload directory, to my /name directory.

    I have "Always use Forum URL as Base Path" set to yes and i have set my "CMS Component URL" option with am absolute URL:

    I set my cookies path to /name/forum/.

    I do see the CMS Front Page ok when i go to /name directory, i see the forums ok when i go to /name/forum directory, but i get an error when i try to edit an article, or navigate to a different section of CMS.

    I get this message in Safari:

    Too many redirects occurred trying to open “Ειδήσεις”. This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which then is redirected to open the original page.
    or this message in Firefox:

    The page isn't redirecting properly
    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    What am i doing wrong??
