Some questions I have before I do a new install.
Does each site require a copy of joomla?
How to get to root after quickstart?
details to questions
1. I have website in a directory, using joomla.
I want to create a second directory and website on the same server account.
Do I still reinstall the whole package for quickstart, with joomla / template / same data etc... just wanted to make sure it wouldnt conflict or do you just need one joomla installed per server.

2. I've installed quickstart before... but after playing around with sample data and changing it to my info the url for all pages shows a path going to the quickstart folder, example: sitefoldername/quickstart/index.php/homepage/pagename
How do I avoid this to make sure my site is set up in the root name directory and not show quickstart folder?

thanks for any preinstall advise

Hello,

The quickstart package contains Joomla, so it should be installed in a separate (empty) directory.
On a web server you can install many Joomla (or other CMS) installations, however you have to store them in separate directories.

I guess that your domain is linked to the certain directory on your web server, so you will have to install the quickstart in that directory (make sure it is empty) or you will have to link your domain to a new directory. If you don't know how to do it, please contact your hosting support.

Regards,
Marcin
