Difference between root install and sub-folder install?


Recommended Posts


I've used IP v 3.x in the past and know that in order to get the SEO friendly URLs to look correct, it was best to install the board into a sub-folder.

So I would install the software in /forum and then use IP.Content in the root folder and it would display urls the way I wanted them to be displayed.

Coming back to IPv4, I've noticed that if I install the board in the root, it will display the url of a page created as http://example.com/index.php?/pagename/


So I guess my question is, is it better for the friendly URLs scheme, if I install the board into a subfolder like I did using IPv3.x or is there a way to fix this currently with IPv4?


Thanks for your help.
