Renaming main folder [Solved]

Post by Arganos » Tue Apr 29, 2008 10:37 am

Hello there!

I have a question. I installed Joomla in /Joomla/ for testing purposes. I was planning to rename the folder to something along the lines of "main", so it would be http://www. where Joomla would be located.

However when I rename the folder I get a blank screen when I enter the pathway.

Any help?

Thanks in advance,

Arganos
