Sytist Manual > Installation

Moving into a sub folder or changing folder name

These are instructions for moving an existing Sytist installation into a sub folder or renaming a sub folder.

Moving Sytist files into a sub folder

First through your FTP program, in the root or public folder create the folder you want to move the files into. Be sure it is all lower case and no spaces.

Select all the Sytist files and folders and the folders created by Sytist (the sections you have created) and drag them into that new folder. All the Sytist files & folders start with sy- with the exception of the index.php or indexnew.php file.

Download the sy-config.php file from your website and open it in a text or php editor. On an empty line before the closing PHP tag ?> add the following line: 

$setup['temp_url_folder'] = "/folder-name";

The folder-name is the name of the folder you created. It MUST start with the forward slash (/).

Save and re-upload the sy-config.php file.

Changing the Sytist sub folder name

First rename the folder containing the Sytist files through your FTP program.

Download the sy-config.php file from your website and open it in a text or php editor.

Look for the line:
$setup['temp_url_folder'] = "/folder-name";

Change the folder-name to the new name of the folder.

It MUST start with the forward slash (/).

Save and re-upload the sy-config.php file.

Moving a Sytist installation from a sub folder into the root

If you are moving Sytist from a sub folder into the root to make it your main website and you have an existing website, you may want to first create a new folder where your website files are and move your existing website files into that folder as a backup.

Connect to your website with your FTP program and navigate to the folder you have your Sytist installation in. Select all files and folder and move them up one level by dragging them to the up a level icon. 

Then download the sy-config.php file and open it in a text editor like note pad. If you are using a host that has a file manager in cPanel, you can also edit it there.

Look for this line: $setup['temp_url_folder'] = "/folder-name"; 

Delete that line, save and re-upload. 

If some files or folders did not move, then there are existing files / folder with the same name in the folder you are moving to. You should move those files / folders into a backup folder then try to move the files again.
