Vanilla forum inside CakePHP installation

Good day,

We've been struggling with this for a while and cannot find a solution.
There doesn't seem to be any specific answers to solve the problem.

We installed a Vanilla forum inside CakePHP /app/webroot/forums/ folder.
The forums are here: http://tribulant.com/forums/

As you navigate to any link, thread, etc... Vanilla adds the /app/webroot/ into the URL.
So it becomes: http://tribulant.com/app/webroot/forums/

It is due to rewrite rules and we're struggling to rewrite or strip this path out.

Any ideas and suggestions will be greatly appreciated so that we can get rid of that /app/webroot/ part in the URLs.

    Yes

    $Configuration['Garden']['WebRoot'] = 'app/webroot/forums';
    $Configuration['Garden']['StripWebRoot'] = 'app/webroot';
    

    you may want to block external access to app/webroot/forums in your server rules.

    grep is your friend.

    Thank you for your reply and help.

    Unfortunately this doesn't work.
    It changes: http://tribulant.com/forums/discussions
    And: http://tribulant.com/app/webroot/forums/discussions
    To the following: http://tribulant.com/discussions

    So it removes the /forums/ part now as well which causes a problem.

    Thanks to your guidance, we were able to fix this for the first time.

    $Configuration['Garden']['WebRoot'] = 'app/webroot/'; $Configuration['Garden']['StripWebRoot'] = 'app/webroot';

    That was the code that solved it.

    And for those reading this thread... the file to put that code into is conf/config.php
    It may seem obvious but for non-technical people, this should help.
