so I have magento installed on http://www.mydomain.com/magento

but I want the cart to be at http://www.mydomain.com on the public_htm directory.

Should I just reinstall on that directory or does magento have a tool to make magento show at http://www.mydomain.com without the /magento url?

Another thing to consider is that I want to develop this site to be easily indexed in search engines.  reinstalling is not a problem as this is a brand new domain and site.

thanks in advance - David

Since this is a new store, I would reinstall Magento to the parent directory, it will save you from a migraine.

I read this post late.
If you need to move Magento from one directory or domain, you just need to follow three steps.

1) Delete the content of the /var folder.
2) Change that connecition settings of the /app/etc/local.xml file.
3) Change the value of the web/secure/url and web/unsecure/url keys, for your new domain/path. (This values are on the core_config_data table).

That’s all you need to do.
