Trying to set up my installation on. 1and1 hosted server.

I keep getting the message stating that my data directory could not be found.

I don't know if I can create a directory that it not in my web space directory.....

I' m not a PHP developer, so not sure how to manually update my config?PHP file.

Help would be appreciated.

Hi there,

If you are using a shared hosting provider like 1&1 they will not give you root access to their servers, it will only allow for the HTTPDOCS folder where you can add HTML files.

You would need have a private server or a VPS to get to the root. You would be better off putting it in an online folder and protecting it from being viewed using an htaccess file:

<Directory "/path/to/your/documents/dataDir">
Deny all
