I hope I don't appear stupid; but in the installation instructions it says "Next, you should see a sub folder called '_mysite'. This is a sample directory structure with some empty folders that you will need. Copy these empty folders into the location you have chosen for 'mysite'." However I can not find this folder in the installation download. Are these blank folders which are written to during the installation process? Do I add the folders and CHMODD 777 them?

Hello Neil,

The subfolder has the name _www (not _mysite). Please copy the index.php file in your chosen directory for 'mySite'. All other folders will be automatically created during the installation process. So the only thing you have to do, is to copy the index.php file and call the mysite directory in your browser, this should start the installation process.

Hi,

Would someone mind clarifying what Mel explained to Neil above.

I have a similar problem installing jojo, and when I get to the part where you declare the 'Jojo Base Directory:' and click 'go to step 2' I just get a 404 error message as the browser tries to open an 'install' directory that's not there. There's obviously something simple that I'm just not seeing here. Am I supposed to make a new folder called mysite and copy the index.php file from the _www directory into there?

Hi Dean,

You will need to copy the /_www/index.php file from the Jojo directory into the web accessible directory on the server.

Then, create an empty folder called "mysite" somewhere on your server (preferably not inside the web root directory). If you give write permissions to the new mysite directory, Jojo can create everything it needs underneath this.

Through the install process, Jojo will also want to create a .htaccess file, which it will attempt to create and if that fails (due to no write permissions) it will supply the contents for you to copy paste.

What may go wrong is if your web host already has a .htaccess file there. If this is the case, rename the host's .htaccess to something else and allow Jojo to create it's own version. Then, you will probably want to manually join the 2 files together depending what functionality the original file gave you.

Without the .htaccess functioning properly, you will get 404s for www.domain.com/install/ as this isn't a real file/folder - .htaccess is required to re-route this request back into the Jojo folder for handling.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need any more assistance.

Harvey.
