How to name Joomla directory for web access

Postby w24178 » 17. September 2011 16:31

What name should I give my joomla installation directory to be able to navigate to it from the internet ,outside my network using my domain name (mysite.com). Does mysite.com need to be the name of the installation folder in htdocs?

You can name it whatever you want.

I already have a domain name. Should I name it That name.com to navigate directly to it from the world wide web?

I just can repeat myself: you can name it whatever you want.
The folder name is indepenend from the domain name.

Okay Thank you very much. If I had 2 domain names and 2 joomla sites how would my dns server pick the right one?

I hope you don't use a standard XAMPP without hardening it for that.
Otherwise your server can be transmuted to a zombie server in less than 3 seconds.

Why do so many people think server security is an easy thing with just one correct answer you can simply put into a forum post or tutorial?

There are so many hosters out there where you can get security and space for just a few bucks.
Website hosting is nothing for beginners!

I agree with what you say but if you never try you will never learn. Thanks for the help.

You have problems with folder naming and request routing.
I think server security goes far over your head at this time.

Once again you are correct. This whole experience has been way over my head. I build things out of steel for a living, not words and pictures. But I have muddled thru this far and have a site that still needs a lot of work but is better than I had and I am not going to quit now. If Danica shows up at my door to sign me up I will let Gddy host, otherwise it's up to me.
