Trying to update a website https://lucnadeau.ca
in order to simplify and correct all sorts of errors that have crept in, mainly because it’s two sites in parallel, one English language and the other French.
Because MAMP doesn’t work on my box, I’m setting up a subdomain pideja.ca/lucnadeau in order to build the new site without disrupting the existing one.
Alas, I don’t remember how to set this up!
I unzipped the downloaded Backlight installer;
I wanted to copy the unzipped files to the public folder of my server, but, there are just a log file, a changelog, and the Publisher file…! The instructions state that there should be
as well as the .htaccess file.
I think I’ll have to face it: my attempt at using an already created section, the French side of lucnadeau.ca in order to build a newer version as a subdomain, simply does not work. I was hoping to avoid rebuilding the entire site by salvaging sections and redirecting the links, but it looks like it’s more than that.
So, unless I find a way to do this shortly, I’ll drop everything and start from scratch.
Sorry for the misunderstanding…I am trying to install it in a subdirectory, not a subdomain. My bad.
What I don’t understand is why can’t I install the Publisher and then, copy/paste the folder structure from the site I’m trying to edit. In other words, copy the folders/files from lucnadeau.ca/fr to pideja.ca/lucnadeau ? I realize that there will be a lot of links to fix, but that would still save me all that designing I did on the original site.
