Joomla 2.5 web matrix installation change installation dir?

Post by scousejohno » Thu Jun 21, 2012 8:22 am

Hi,

I must say the whole installation process via web matrix was excellent and completely hassle free although i guess thats not the case for everyone, but for myself it was straight forward.

The problem i have now, is that web matrix did not seem to ask for an install directory, and given that i want to utlilise iis7 as this is an intranet install, i really need to specify the installation directory. If anybody could point me to a resource explaining how to do this it would be greatly appreciated.

TIA

This was resolved by accessing the installed projects within web matrix and changing the installation dir for any new projects. So we reinstalled into our inetpub directory.
