Local www folder hierarchy matches remote site

September 13, 2017 — BarryK

When I first created shellCMS (forked from BashBlog), I specified the local copy of the website in a folder named LOCAL. If there is a nested shellCMS, say "news", then it was in LOCAL/news/LOCAL, which is getting weird. And difficult to understand when looking at shellCMS for the first time.

I have modified the shellcms script so that the local website is now www, and everything inside is exactly as it will be on the remote host. This greatly simplifies everything, and is easy to understand.

I have rewritten these tutorials accordingly:

There is another improvement that I want to work on next, that users will like. Hope to implement that tomorrow morning.
