I have Kliqqi 350 installed in the /public folder on my site. I want to upgrade. I'm totally fine with creating a new folder, as you say, called /kliqqi-upgrade and doing what you say in your video -

Question, though, I'm assuming I will just rename /public to /kliqqi old, and then /kliqqi-upgrade to /public, right

My NOOB question is, is there something (a redirect or something) I can put in the /public folder that points to a sub Kliqqi folder - ie /public/kliqqi - so that kliqqi is the default when someone goes to my domain, and I don't have kliqqi sitting in the /public folder? Or is that OK?

I realize this is something for my hosting provider, but what's the best practice here for a Kliqqi installation so that it is the default when someone types my domain name into the browser?

If you want to redirect the traffic to the root of your domain, then you have to do it in htaccess.

Any request to the root domain, like http://MYDOMAIN.COM will be transparently redirected to the subdomain or folder you specify.

This must be added to the htaccess or create one that resides in the ROOT of your domain (not in the subdirectories)

##make sure RewriteEngine is on
RewriteEngine on
## to redirect traffic from the root domain to a specific subdirectory
## example from to
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} mydomain\.com [NC] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /public/$1 [L]

## to redirect the traffic from one subdirectory to another subdirectory
## example: from to
RewriteRule ^public/(.*)$ /kliqqi/$1 [R=301,NC,L]
