#8070 What is the DocumentRoot of Allura Installation - Centos 7 - PHP 5.4


Hello Developers,

I would like to work with hosted Allura itself and not find out loud to DocumentRoot as the paths.

I sit on Centos 7.0 and PHP 5.4 and mySQL latest version.
In FTP account I have the directory /allura/allura and in the directories like /ForgeBlog, /ForgeChat, /ForgeDiscussion and so on.

My vHost entry in the httpd.conf file looks like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
 ServerName allura.alexl.eu
  ServerAdmin root@allura.alexl.eu
 DocumentRoot /var/www/allura/allura
<Directory /var/www/allura/allura>
     Options +Indexes +FollowSymLinks +MultiViews
     AllowOverride All
     Require all granted
 CustomLog /var/log/allura/access.log common
 ErrorLog /var/log/allura/error.log

But something does not seem to agree and I do not know what needs to be entered for DocumentRoot in vhost.

Can you possibly help me there, because otherwise I do not get ahead ?!

I thought that Allura is called in web browsers under /allura, but I have after installation via the console directory /allura and in the directories /allura and /env-allura. Is that correct or so I have to move a little.

I still do not know whether I have placed all Allura content properly. At least I followed a good guide on the official Allura website.

What can you tell me about my problem?
Thanks in advance.

    Allura doesn't work with shared hosting, php, and mysql sorry. It requires your own server, VPS, or virtual machine and runs python and mongodb.
