I want to change the setup of a Liferay portal used in our company so that it loads with the root url rather than having /liferay appended on.

e.g. rather than

I followed the instructions in this post:

That worked except the graphics don’t display because they have /liferay in the path. Same issue with some of the links.

Is there a way to configure this without editing the properties of each graphic and link?

Thanks in advace for your help.

I changed the url and I can see the images and the links seems ok. A possible explanation is that you have introduced these images when the URL is /liferay and this data was introduced hardcoded in the database. Do you know if you have introduced these links before to change the URL?

Yes, the images and links were set up before the url change. I can manualy edit each one via the portal but was hoping for a quicker method.

I did look in the database but have not found a table that shows the image path. Do you know what table that is in?

Thanks for your response.

Sorry but I don’t know another method to modify the links.

I actually made the changes directly in the database after doing the steps in

I used two SQL statements against the journalarticle table.

First, to see how many items had ”/liferay/ in the url” I ran:
SELECT content FROM journalarticle where content like ‘/liferay/

Then to make the actually change:
UPDATE journalarticle SET content = REPLACE

So far it looks like this solved my problems.

Thanks for your help.
