I am new to XOOPS and my knowledge of PHP is VERY limited. I currently own a website hosted by godaddy.com and I want my XOOPS site to be the home page. Here's the problem: my XOOPS website is currently in a folder called XOOPS (aslclub.net/xoops/ is the only way to access it) and I don't know how to make it my homepage when I go to aslclub.net. I tried moving all the XOOPS files to the main root folder but I get a bunch of errors. Do you know how I could fix this? I am using godaddy as my host which installs the program for me, so if you can tell me how I can connect a new XOOPS installation with the existing database (godaddy has an option of installing XOOPS in the root folder but it creates a new MySQL database each time I download it) that would help too. Here's the error messages by the way. Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi,

you will need to make some changes in mainfile.php to reflect the new location. Check this FAQ:

https://xoops.org/modules/smartfaq/faq.php?faqid=150

and this FAQ:

https://xoops.org/modules/smartfaq/faq.php?faqid=193

Do not forget to clean the cache and template cache depending on your XOOPS version too.
