Kurt8 Hi, this is a server setting that has to be configured on your hosting platform. Those things have nothing to do with a CMS. You have to configure your site in that way that the
automad directory is the document root of the domain. In general, any application — here the CMS — needs an entrypoint that is reachable by the requested URL.
Even though you could probably make that redirect work by putting a
.htaccess in your current root directory in order to redirect to the
automad directory, it would be much cleaner to set up the document root correctly in the first place.
