Modification of application installation path
For instance, Joomla installs to a subdirectory called /joomla which makes the URL of the Joomla site: www.domain.com/joomla
That is not an acceptable path. Our customers are then moving the Joomla files into their root /httpdocs directory for a better URL for the site. After that, the default buttons in the panel no longer work. It would be great if you could make the path editable for the customer to continue to use the installation buttons to get to their site and administrator panel from the panel.
This feature is already implemented in the upcoming Plesk 12.1 release. We encourage you to check the implementation in one of upcoming Plesk previews and let us know what you think. Everyone, thanks for your input and votes.
Default installation path for all webapps is ‘/’
moveing the joomla to another folder is ok. But installation path remains still the same and mail does nolonger work!!
A lot of the time we install Joomla at /joomla for testing and building purposes to not interfere with the main website. Once that's done we have to manually move the site from /joomla to / however this breaks the application manager for Plesk. Can you implement an option to change the path of the Joomla/Wordpress install?
I would also like to see customer asked to specify the installation folder on default install. too often customers click install and then find out its in wrong folder, then move it manually, only to find out that their install mysteriously breaks when plesk auto update changes configuration path back to sub-directory. Then we get help desk call to fix site or move it to parent directory. either way its a pain point that should be removed.
I know it can be selected in custom install but have you done a survey to work out how many miss that particular feature as its a lot...
re: There is option for custom installation, where you can specify target dir.
You need to use the drop down box to do the custom installation which is not ideal. Customers usually just click on the Install button - which creates unwanted support queries...
+1 on our end too. We want the customer to choose the path of installation.
There is option for custom installation, where you can specify target dir.
I agree with this completely. We have alot of support requests asking why their WordPress or Joomla website isn't visible, and this is all because they installed it using the default setting in either /joomla or /wordpress.
Because moving the sites isn't very easy as well this consumes alot of our helpdesk time.
