    I am using cpanel to install the CMS which happens to be Xoops. But, when I go into set up the directory cpanel wants me to add an "Installation URL".

    I don't want to add one as I need it to be presented on me MAIN website, or page ONE of my site. It won't let me leave it blank.

    I have tried entering "index.html" but when I do that it approves the new database and it comes up as "indexhtml" without the period. And that, as you know means it does NOT load to the main website page.

    I am beyond frustrated. Can someone PLEASE help me by pass this? I tried to not come here and bug you all for help but four hours into this and I am at a loss.

    thanks in advance

    If it does not let you leave the field blank then try putting in 'public_html' instead.
