Hi I need specific help with iPage?

First question I got is Hi I need specific help with iPage? Many thanks for any response. Another question I got... Hi all,.

I have a question concerning moving my store to the root. Right now it's in /catalog directory. However I want to make it so the store comes up when a user goes to www.mydomain.com..

I know I can move the files to the root and change the config files accordingly. However my issue is with my control panel for my iPage hosting site. Right now if I enter in www.mydoamin.com/admin it takes me to my configuration page for my site. where I can enter e-mails etc..

If I move my store to the root, then how do I access the configuration area of my store?.

The iPage hosting company gave me the solution to use a .htaccess file. Is this a good thing or bad? How is that for search engines?.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..

Thanks,.

Pete..

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

The reason I am concerned is that if I move it to the root, then I would have a conflict with the www.mydomain.com/admin (which is what is used to access the web server control panel now) and www.mydomain.com/catalog/admin (that would change to www.mydomain.com/admin if I move it to the root.).

Am I making sense?..

Yes I see, all you need do is rename the oscommerce admin folder then in your admin / includes / configure.php change these two line to the new renamed admin folder.

Define('DIR_WS_ADMIN', '/admin/');.

Define('DIR_FS_ADMIN', '/home/xxxx/public_html/admin/');.

Its the only changes you need to do.

So far I moved everything over and renamed the admin folder to admin_store. Everything seems to be working but I can not log into the admin section of the store. It just returns the log in dialog. I've included the config files here. Can you see if I am missing something? thank you so much for your help so far..

Hiya.

I just tired.

Http://www.rainbowre...com/admin_store.

And it was a broken link..

You sure it's the correct name Pete..

Sorry I forgot to mention that I have not changed the DNS entries yet on this. they have a live iPage site at www.rainbowresearch.com but that is on an older server using MIVA. I've been changing my hosts file in order to configure this site. Here is the IP if that helps..

64.33.80.138/admin_store.

Pete..

Comment #6

You changed the path to admin, so now it has to be changed in the 64.33.80.138/admin_store/.htaccess aswell.
