Just set up a moodle, but didn't think carefully about the URL and so I've tried to change it. Would I be able to simply move the moodle to a different url by editing this on Cpanel? Or do I need to start over from scratch?

Hello beth543,

Thank you for your question. You can change your URL or move moodle using cPanel, here is the Official guide on migrating moodle (I recommend using method 1, option (a)). It also explains how to change your URL.

If you are not familiar with managing files on your server, I recommend this full guide.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

Hi John-Paul! That sounds like it would have the answer for me, but I can't find it at the link. The link simply takes me to the general Support Center main page. And looking through the Moodle helps I don't find this tutorial! ~ ??
