Where do I place my Xoops instalation?

Everything seems installed correctly. Where do I place my Xoops.org instaltion. What directory and what do I put for the config?.

Thanks

I have XAMPP installed in C:\Program Files\xampp.

If you did the same, the simplest method is to extract the contents of the Xoops /html directory into C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\xoops.

Then when you browse to http://localhost/xoops/, I think the Xoops installer will automatically detect the correct path and URL, and place them in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\xoops\mainfile.php. If not, you can provide those values manually:
Code: Select all
define('XOOPS_ROOT_PATH', 'C:/Program Files/xampp/htdocs/xoops');
define('XOOPS_URL', 'http://localhost/xoops');


However, I did this a bit differently. I edited C:\Program Files\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf and changed the location of the document root, because I wanted my htdocs directory to be in a different place.

i think XOOPS comes with a read me that tells you all that. its a portal so your root server folder "htdocs" should be used or as Dave said put it in a folder called xoops
