how to keep magento folder but access via domain.com
You can setup an apache rewrite rule on the server to rewrite http://mydomain.com/[anything other than magento]/… to http://mydomain.com/magent/… or, if you don’t mind people seeing the word magento after coming to the head of your site, you can just setup a .foward in the root to /magento/
