    Hello, I need a bit of help, just signed up and have a nice cpanel now with Fantastico. I installed Mambo with the fantastico scripting, Mambo told me it was not possible to install in the / so I had to create a folder name.
    Everything perfekt so far !

    But how do i get it working? because now i need to type as url: domain/mambo/ i want only to type the domain name.

    Any help is welcome

    Had you not thought of taking all files out of the 'mambo' dir. and putting them one level up -- in Document Root? Then you will be able to use and go right to Mambo. Remember to change the paths though, in the config files.

    Sure, thanks for your suggestion, but thats not what i want. I want to have also a test server. And I want to set up an E-Shop so i use all 3 of my sql DB. I thought this was very simple, but seems no one knows the right answer. the workaround you offer is good if i wanted only one site running with mambo. Thanks anyway.
