Rename linksSQL cgi-bin directory?
 Hi all,

I'd like to change the name of the directory I've installed linksSQL into from lsqldev-2.1.2 to links. On my first attempt, I went into Setup | Path and URL Settings and changed everything, with update_others checked. I hit submit, and then went in and renamed the directory to links. Doing this, I could no longer log in to Admin, and was effectively locked out.

I uploaded an old ConfigData.pm file and renamed the folder back to be able to get back in...

What's the proper way of doing this?

You also have to update the paths at the top of the .cgi files, and a few .pm files I believe.

I was going to write a script that would allow you to rename your copy of Links SQL, or get all the permissions etc setup on a new server, and re-set the paths. This should hopefully become a reality within the next month or so Smile
