Joomla where is $mosConfig_absolute_path & $mosConfig_live_site

Where are these two variables located?

I've been looking in the configuration.php file in my Joomla root but can't find anything. Any help would be great.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It should be located in the root of the folder that Joomla has been installed in (configuration.php). That folder can be called public_html or htdocs or what ever name folder you specified on installation.

If the web installer failed, you can manually install Joomla. Open configuration.php-dist edit the values there and then rename it configuration.php. Upload it to the root folder of your Joomla installation.

Tip: if you download Joomla these files are available in the zip file.

In your configuration.php (for joomla 1.5) your live site is
var $live_site = '';

It sounds like you are reading something from Joomla 1.0
