From the comment sit sims that you want to change the namespace of a community extension, so it looks like your own,
Let me guess your module directory
Third Party Module has structure something like this
app\ code\ community\ namespace\ module\
Now you want the module to be moved to the directory which looks like this
app\ code\ local\ AW\
You need to move all the
module under the
AW folder and rename all the classes inside the
module by replacing the first word that represents the namespace to
Also you will need to rename the module file located at
I hope this is clear.
If you are installing an exisiting 3rd party module, you should note that it is designed to be either in the local (app/code/local) or in the community code pools (app/code/community). You have to install it where it belongs.
You can of course modify the extension to reside in another code pool, but there is really no reason to do so.
you can also try to follow the structure of the folder based on the extension.
extension folder: /app /code /community (local)
your site folder /app /code /community (local)
you can follow it and it will work, dont forget to cached or flush.
