Hello Peter,

While I was installing I had to make /var/www/sites and sites/htdocs as they didn't exisit.

I've renamed the folder with the typo3-src install to MyFirstSite ...

so when I typed 1xx.1xx.1.n/MyFirstSite into my browser I got a 404

So I tried 1xx.1xx.1.n/sites/MyFirstSite.... and hey presto I got a typo3 install page saying ... but my next question is which is my root directory in this case?


Thank you for installing TYPO3

To proceed with the installation, create the file FIRST_INSTALL in your root directory. The filename is case-sensitive but the file itself can be empty.

Note: The file will be deleted once you proceed with the installation.
