In my Control Panel Home, I am getting 2 security warnings:

WARNING: Folder /Blah/Blah/public_html/sitename/xoops_lib is inside DocumentRoot!
For security considerations it is highly suggested to move it out of DocumentRoot.


and

WARNING: Folder /Blah/blah/public_html/sitename/xoops_data is inside DocumentRoot!
For security considerations it is highly suggested to move it out of DocumentRoot.


Now, I'd be happy to make a new directory for these folders and move them, but since this is my first XOOPS site and am still learning, I don't know how to tell XOOPS to look in the new locations.

My domain is hosted by Hostmonster and Xoops was installed using SimpleScripts, if that helps angle down the cause and solution.

Thanks!

Please read the Installation Guide. It should give you a better idea about how to move the folders.

Make sure that your host allows that.
