i've been installing scripts for years, and they're RARELY this stubborn (except for the really crappy ones)! why is this one so damn hard????


if my root path is: "/home/a2936006/public_html/jojo" then why is the installation writing "/www/www.glennnall.com" and "/www/mysite" in the file locations fields? this is of course causing a My Site Directory /www/mysite not found" error.

thanks,
gn

Not an expert and i am not sure how you have yours laid out.. But mine looks like this ATM...

User/public_html/jojo
User/public_html/mysite
User/public_html/index.php
User/public_html/config.php
User/public_html/.htaccess

How ever they do recomend you do it in this layout..
User/public_html/jojo
User/public_html/mysite
User/public_html/example

And these files would be in example.
User/public_html/index.php
User/public_html/config.php
User/public_html/.htaccess

That mine not sure how yours would be..

The installation script tries to guess the locations of your webdir / mysite / jojo directories. It doesn't always get it right - detecting this stuff isn't always straightforward, as Apache configurations differ. But generally the detection makes the install process easier rather than harder.

So, it sounds like you will need to specify these locations yourself.

_WEBDIR should be obvious - it's the absolute location of your index.php file.
_BASEDIR is the absolute location of your Jojo files - again, should be straightforward. We recommend this is kept outside of the web root.
_MYSITEDIR - you will need to create this folder yourself. We recommend one level up from _WEBDIR. Tell the installer where you have created this.

Inside _MYSITEDIR, the install script should ask you to create 4 folders if you haven't already created them - downloads, cache, plugins, themes - give write permissions to the first 2.

Danny's post above is not the recommended approach - we don't like having the mysite folder in the webroot because the cache and downloads folders need write permissions, and this opens up a few security issues.

I would recommend this...

User/jojo
User/mysite
User/mysite/downloads
User/mysite/cache
User/mysite/plugins
User/mysite/themes
User/public_html/index.php
User/public_html/config.php
User/public_html/.htaccess

Ahhh My bad... I misunderstood where the files go.
I must say that the install instructions are rather bad.

One of the nice things about Jojo is that it lets you store the entire thing outside of any public directories... not many people take advantage of this though.
