Install to it's own folder

Install to it's own folder

Can I get instructions on how to "install" PowerCMS to it's own directory/folder.

Here is one of the things I have tried but with no success:

In Dreamweaver: (prior to adding PowerCMS to site)

Right click on the top directory (site root folder) >
Choose New Folder >
Name it "PowerCMS" >

Now do I create a test page in that folder/directory "PowerCMS"?

Save it >
Add a paragraph >
Select it >
Menu Webassist >
"Add content to PowerCMS" >

I have not been successful so far.

Again thanks for the time. I hope this helps others also. :)

PowerCMS Builder will install the power CMS Files to the root of your Dreamweaver site. It needs to install to the root of the Dreamweaver site in order for Dreamweaver to link the files correctly.

The CMS Admin files will be installed to the admin_cms folder.

This is actually a post that was moved to the wishlist "Suggest Changing Folder Names"

But I really need to get a handle on how to do this. Your suggestion there was:

"The Power CMS Files should be installed to it's own directory to avoid this"

in your site, create a subdirectory:


and upload the power CMS files to the PowerCMS Subdirectory

Thanks for your time.

since the PowerCMS Builder files can only be installed to the root of the Dreamweaver site, this is all controlled by how you define the Dreamweaver site.

you can set the Dreamweaver site to upload to a sub directory of your remote site by setting the host directory to point to the sub directory in the Remote Settings of the site definition.

The PowerCMS Files will be added to the Root of the Local Dreamweaver Site Files. where those files are uploaded to the remote server depends on how you configure the remote settings in your Site Definition.
