Vanilla pathing resources wrong?

The first time I tried I had no problem. Now, when I git clone or download and copy Vanilla folder to my htdocs folder on my XAMPP server, the resources that Vanilla is attempting to load are path'd wrong. This carries from the install to the running forums after the install. For example, view page source for the install:

It should be just "applications/". It is attempting to load resources from the root of the localhost for some reason, instead of the /vanilla folder that it is in.

What could have caused this?

  • link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/applications/dashboard/design/setup.css?v=2.2.16.6" media="all"

    is the link

  • So I've tried reinstalling XAMPP, installing MAMP instead. Also 'AllowOveride All' in httpd.conf and 'RewriteBase /vanilla" in .htaccess of vanilla directory. wtf.

    This is a proper path, assuming Vanilla is installed in the webroot.

  • It was trying to install a new installation. Problem a was the alpha version, it is well, alpha. Branch 2.1 works fine.

    First you should only need to clone once. If you are pulling from master you are using an alpha version which is not for production sites. Best stick to the the released downloads.

    Always follow the installation/upgrade instructions.
