    Default Can I remove /open-realty/ from my website URL?

    I think I am missing something obvious here, but I want anyone using my original website URL to go to the OR homepage, but this only happens if /open-realty/ is typed on the end of it, otherwise they go to the homepage of my hosting provider.
    How can I set it up so that either they go directly to the OR page, (which is what I really want) or if I have to set up another homepage with my host, that it can easily link to OR?
    I hope that makes sense

    Thanks

    Rob

    Yes, you are missing something very obvious: any software will run where you install it.
    If you installed O-R inside a folder named "open-realty", that's where it will always run.
    Once you don't want it, you have 2 options:

    - make a new installation at the root of your server
    (http://open-realty.org/docs/release/...45646119769663)

    - move your installation to the root of your server
    (http://open-realty.org/docs/release/...HOST_966686857)

    If you decide to move, you will also need to re-issue your License Key.

    I was unable to move the installation so I did a re-install to root as suggested and my problem is resolved, Thanks! On looking back at the documentation it does say either to install to root or to a sub-folder. It was easier for me to upload the whole folder in one go so that was the option I chose, without realising what the effect would be.
