Understanding ccHost URLs
Understanding how URLs work in ccHost is a very important concept that you should understand before doing anything else. URL Parts
ccHost URLs are composed of four main parts:
1. Root URL of installation
- This is the URL address of where index.php lives. For example: http://example.com, or http://example.com/cchost
2. Virtual Root
- Don't worry if you don't know what a 'ccHost virtual root' is, we'll get to it here but for now assume it's the word media.
- This part of the URL maps to an internal command in ccHost. This can be anything from a request for a submit form, a feed, a record listing, etc. Examples are people which shows a listing of the latest registered users who have uploaded or files which lists the latest uploads.
- Many if not most commands accept and even require parameters. For example, adding a specific user's name to the people command will display the user's main page, e.g. people/rejon
You should refer to the ccHost Command Reference for a listing of all available commands.
If you have enabled 'pretty URLs' in your installation then all the elements are strung together into one URL:
If not, then everything starting from the virtual root is prepended the following way:
Admins, editors, etc.
Comma-separated list of login names for users with editorial privileges
Auto Publish Uploads
Uncheck this if you want to verify uploads before they are made public.
For example a file: docs/home or a navigation tab: view/media/home
