I'm running a web site www.mydomainname.com/html/ i want to pump up in search engines in a determinate keyword so i was thinking to change XOOPS_ROOT_PATH:
from
www.mydomainname.com/html/
to
www.mydomainname.com/keyword/ or to www.mydomainname.com/html/keyword/

I think i can easy change XOOPS_ROOT_PATH somewhere in mySql db.

I have only a problem I already indicized a lot of pages on majors search engine under the url: www.mydomainname.com/html/modules/url so if change the path from html to keyword i will lose visitors because all the urls change and i've to wait at last 3-4 mounths until search engines will re-indicized new urls.

So i i'm thinking to run a XOOPS clone web site for the beginning.
do anyone know a way to clone a XOOPS site or automatic redict do new urls.
I donno, maybe i can use "find" and "replace" to change in php pages of clone site:
from
XOOPS_ROOT_PATH.
to
XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/keyword".
but i don't know if i have to change it in all php pages or or just in some pages.

I'm not a php programmer and i don't know well the structure of xoops.
Maybe someone have already cloned a XOOPS web site based on the same sql database and can help me
sorry for my english and thanks in advice
cheers

Easy fix, just change it as you would and drop an htaccess with rewriterules into your root.
