    • Hi koomar,

      I had the same problem as yours, and when I contacted Byethost free hosting support, they said it's impossible to write files outside their htdocs folder.

      So what I did instead, is the following:

      1. Install elgg in a subdirectory within the byethost's htdocs folder (i.e. in /htdocs/elgg)

      2. Create the data directory within the the htdocs folder (i.e. in /htdocs/elgg-data)

      3. Configure .htaccess in /htdocs/elgg and uncomment the RewriteBase line, so that the URL Rewrites will work properly.

      4. Protect your elgg-data from unauthorized access! Create an .htaccess file within /htdocs/elgg-data so it contains the following:

      Order deny,allow
      Deny from all

      That will protect elgg-data from being accessed from the browser.

      You will now be able to access the elgg site at

      Now, what if they access (without the /elgg)? It's pretty simple.

      Create an .htaccess file within /htdocs containing the following:

      DirectoryIndex elgg/index.php

      So that when you access the site without /elgg, it automatically redirects to the /elgg.

      Just sharing what I did to make it work, and hope it helps.
