I have Joomla 3 installed on my host and am building my site. When I try to go to my site, I get 404 not found. Joomla has added /joomla30 to my site and must be added in order to access my website. How can I change this?
This is probably due to the name of the folder. If you have joomla inside, for example: root/joomla30/ and you didn't configure anything yet, then you will surely be able to get to joomla only by typing http://mywebsite.com/joomla30.
After a complete installation, you will be able to redirect joomla30 to anythingyouwant using your .htaccess file.
This could be related to your
.htaccess file. Check if this file has something like
inside. Also make sure Joomla is installed in the root directory of your domain, and not in a subdirectory.
