Hello all,

I am a noob to web development so I can use all the help I can get. I want to use the bootstrap framework but in a custom directory. I have tried to install it following the directions on the bootstrap website but with no success. Could anyone with experience using bootstrap please tell me how to get it installed in a directory of my chosing.

Post your porject's folder / files structure and how your are referencing them on your html page.

This way we can help you see what's the problem.


The question is less likely to be about where you want bootstrap to be and more about where you're telling your web server to serve from. You can easily install bootstrap in whatever directory you want, but you then need to tell your web server to serve the content up from that directory.
