Hi,

When installing magento from my local machine to the host server. I unzipped the downloader version directly under my “www” folder. I am having two issues

1. Once I install the path that I need to access the site is <http://www.mysite.com/magento> can i configure in a way that i need to type in http://www.mysite.com and it should get redirected to the actual magento folder.

2.All teh subsequent paths that are seen on the address bar should not include magento ?

How would i do that ?

I am using MAgento 1.1.6

Thanks in advance,
Naresh

The easiest way is to unzip it into the parent directory. One way of doing this is to manually move all of the files from the Magento folder to the parent directory. If you use FTP it will take longer, but if you have cPanel it will be a lot quicker. But remember, do this before you run the installation setup.
