Subject: Renamed root directory
When I was just starting out I figured I could just "go!"

I copied the DokuWiki folder into the root of my Drupal-based site, ran install.php, loaded it up with information for a few hours, and all was well. Then, I thought, my product name is GoldSMS. Why should my users go to www.plain-english.com/dokuwiki to see the User Guide? Wouldn't it make more sense for them to go to www.plain-english.com/goldsmsdoc instead?

So I just changed the name of the dokuwiki directory. Reckless, I know.

Now is it just me? Or is everything still working fine? Should I be very nervous regarding problems that may (or will!) rear their ugly heads in the hours or days to come?


(Actually, I noticed my toolbar was gone... but after re-saving my Configuration Settings it looks to be back (hooray!).)

That's perfectly fine. All you need is a rebuild of the cache which you already achieved by resaving the config.

In some cases, the .htaccess hidden file should be adjusted. I had the problem because for an obscure reason (i don't remember bu maybe it is related to the "nice URL" functionnality i used), the line "RewriteBase /dokuwiki" was used and then needed to be adjusted to the new directory name.
