Problem:

When I type www.burrellcards.com it looks very messy because it cannot find files/folders needed to populate the site.

What I did to cause this:

I changed the following setting with my HOST provider on the domain name www.burrellcards.com:

From:

Destination As a home directory : /.

To:

Destination As a home directory : /catalog

I was hoping to be able to get to my site without having to type the /catalog at the end.

I changed it back but obviously something else has changed to not allow me to access the sight via www.burrellcards.com/catalog.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Thank you for the help but it appears that I have done other than that to create my problems.

Again ... Thank you.

Ether install/copy all file from catalog into your ROOT directory and run the install (no DB import needed if you have done that already) or edit BOTH configure.php files

Thus:
www.your_site.com

Instead of:
www.your_site.com/catalog

Where every you enter:
"/catalog" - put "/"
"catalog/" - put "/"
"catalog" - put nothing (blank)

OR use the HTACCESS to redirect....

OR use HTML - Make a small index.html file with the following:-

<SCRIPT>
location="http://www.your_server.com/catalog"
</SCRIPT>
Whenever somebody types in www.your_server.com they get automatically diverted to www.your_server.com/catalog
