Document Root Installation

When you copy your files to the server, instead of copying the catalog dir and files to the sub directory /catalog, simply copy the files and directories to the document root (your www or public_html dir) Copy the “admin” folder to your document root as well.
 
Next, in your browser enter:
http://www.yourserver.com/install/install.php . Replace ‘yourserver’ with your domain name or ip address.
 
Change the following after installation:
/includes/configure.php
 
The line in the configure.php :
define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/catalog/'); // absolute path required
 
can be changed to :
 
define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/'); // absolute path required
 
and change these lines:
define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', $DOCUMENT_ROOT);
define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT . DIR_WS_CATALOG);
 
to
 
define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', '/home/serverusername/public_html');
define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/serverusername/public_html/');
 
Change the /admin/includes/configure.php to match this as well.
