PERCH_TEMPLATE_PATH - localhost question


I have used a local domain example.local with the installation above the www folder but when it comes to setting the PERCH_TEMPLATE_PATH:

define('PERCH_TEMPLATE_PATH','C:/Program Files (x86)/Ampps/_templates/');

it does not work and it only works with:

define('PERCH_TEMPLATE_PATH','C:/Program Files (x86)/Ampps/www/_templates/');

of which I don't think localhost will work with a subdomain, e.g. for images (subject of another post I believe).

I could edit the same set of .html templates for either site, but it would be better to have one for development and one for staging on the local machine, since I would have a "live" backup as it were.

Also, I used this:


but it only works for the home page.

Any advice would be warmly welcomed.

Thanks for all the help thus far.

This isn't something that we can support. We can only support our software being used in the way it was designed.

Hi Rachel,

I put the templates folder back into the perch folder and all is well.

Thanks again.
