I have installed Magento and uploaded a Magento template that I purchased from a third party.

Magento is installed on a subfolder of a

When I try to access the front end, I get the following error

D:\xxxxx\xxxxx\ was not found

But I could access the backend.

Then I opened up the index.php file edited the following line : $mageFilename = MAGENTO_ROOT . ‘/app/Mage.php’;
to $mageFilename = MAGENTO_ROOT . ‘/eshop/app/Mage.php’;

eshop is the folder where I installed Magento.

Uploaded the modified index file and the front end opened up in a browser. But then the backend wouldn’t open up.
The error that I get from the browser is” Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.”

I am not sure how to fix this.
