How to have vanilla in a directory and access it from another one

edited November 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hello, I want to install vanilla in a directory call "forum" but i want to access to it from a index file in a directory call support. Is it possible ? What do I need ? Is it enough to copy the index.php file in the new directory ? Thanks for your help. Dominique.

    No, it seems to me that it's not enough. Some other pages are front controllers (account.php, categories.php, comments.php...).
    I must admit that this is useless work to me. Is your boss asking this (or are you masochist)?
    Do you want to forbid access to Vanilla from to?

    How powerfull is your access to the server, do you have shell acces, can you soft-link?
    I think that it can be solved with rewriting in an .htacces though, but I'm not an .htaccess guru.

    I'm not masochist ... I don't think so ... maybe ;-) This is because I'm using a specific software for the website and my question is about theme. With the soft, I choose a theme (Css, Grid, Menus...) and then I can write some HTML code ... Dominique.

    Could you be more specific please? What software? What can't you do if Vanilla is all in the forum/ directory?

    it could be easy with a rewrite rule.
    How exactly do you want you file tree be like?
