    Hi, there,

    I have the main "free" site and content off of the root of my site, and I'm having the members area in a separate sub-folder with all of the pages and content.

    Should I have this in the same folder I install amember to?

    Or can I have it in its own folder separately?

    Does it matter or is there an advantage?

    Like I if I want to install amember to the /amember folder but my content to a /content folder, will this work?

    Or do I have to install the content to something in /amember?

    Have a good day, and thanks.

    - Paul

    This is the way it should be done

    Your content should never be in the aMember folder; you will have loads of problems.

    Separate folder protected by aMember.

    I installed my Amember application in the root of my server, cron jobs do not work and fail because the path does not include the "amember" folder - so my question is should I rename my sites root folder, and if I did what problems might that cause, I have a couple of plugins - or can I change the path in relation to the cron job somewhere to eliminate the folder "amember" in the required paths for the additional php files, etc.???

    error is as follows:

    Content-type: text/html
    <br />
    <b>Warning</b>:  require_once(/home/content/39/12436339/html/amember/bootstrap.php) [<a href='function.require-once'>function.require-once</a>]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in <b>/home/content/39/12436339/html/amember/cron.php</b> on line <b>3</b><br />
