I’m working through the tutorial at https://www.silverstripe.org/learn/lessons/v4/creating-your-first-project and I’m losing the will to live a bit. Can anybody help?
Firstly, it says that the default project directory is /my-site. I don’t have one of those However, towards the end it rambles on about moving /my-site to /app which I do have. Has the default changed or am I missing something?
In the section “What about public?” it tells you (I think - I’m really not sure) not to put some parts of one’s custom theme in the theme/ directory, rather put them in /public because the default installer creates symlinks to the theme/ directory. Well, as far as I can tell the default installer doesn’t and the default install still works. So… I guess I’m very confused about where I should put these directories. Can anybody advise?
I’m assuming that these basic tutorials are out of date… which is a bit unfortunate.
