site home page and powerstore home page

site home page and powerstore home page

Hi ,
I'm creating a new ecommerce site with Power Store.
The directions say to install Power Store files to it's own directory and make sure to name it "powerstore". However, I want the Powerstore home page to also be my sites main home page.
Right now I have it set up and installed on my local server with the "powerstore" as it's own directory.
When I open the site, lush, nothing is shown (which makes sense). To navigate to the home page of the powerstore it the path looks like this "http://localhost/lush/powerstore/index.php"
Do you recommend that I create an index.html page in my root folder (lush/index.html) that redirects it to the lush/powerstore/index.php page (keeping the "powerstore" in it's own directory)? Or can I just install the files within the "powerstore" folder to my root directory so the home page of the site is the same home page shown in powerstore?

Thanks for your help,
- D

I'd just install the powerstore files into the root directory. We only recommend putting it in the sub folder so that we don't overwrite your existing index.php page, but if you want it to then there is no reason not to just put it in that directory to begin with.

Thanks Ray!
Just wanted to double check that I could do that.

One other question. I'd like to go ahead and install powerstore on the live site. But, I don't want the visitors to view/access the site until I've uploaded all the products and edited the design. Is there a way to password protect the site temporarily while I finish up development. I could always develop on my local server first and then move it to a live server but I'd prefer to skip to the live site but hide/deny access it from the public until we are ready to sell. Any advice?

Password protecting the site during development would be done by the host.


For example, with 1 and 1, you can log into your sites control panel, and define Protected Directories, by using a forward slash for the directory name "/", it password protects the entire site.

Contact your host to get more details on how this is done on their systems.
