Portability

A few paths are hard coded if after installation you wish to use a different drive letter make the following modifications to Xoops.

Edit file mainfile.php found in the xoops folder (you will need to remove read only attribute)

The variable $_ENV['Disk'] picks up the current virtual drive letter.

Replace every occurrence of drive letter “W” with the variable $_ENV['Disk'] as show in the lines outdented. <pre>

   // XOOPS Physical Paths
   
   // Physical path to the XOOPS documents (served) directory WITHOUT trailing slash

//define( 'XOOPS_ROOT_PATH', 'W:/www/xoops' ); define( 'XOOPS_ROOT_PATH', $_ENV['Disk'].':/www/xoops' );

   // For forward compatibility
   // Physical path to the XOOPS library directory WITHOUT trailing slash

//define( 'XOOPS_PATH', 'W:/home/xoops_lib' ); define( 'XOOPS_PATH', $_ENV['Disk'].':/home/xoops_lib' );

   // Physical path to the XOOPS datafiles (writable) directory WITHOUT trailing slash

//define( 'XOOPS_VAR_PATH', 'W:/home/xoops_data' ); define( 'XOOPS_VAR_PATH', $_ENV['Disk'].':/home/xoops_data' );

   // Alias of XOOPS_PATH, for compatibility, temporary solution
   define("XOOPS_TRUST_PATH", XOOPS_PATH);

</pre>

Note: After saving the file set it’s file attribute back to read only.
