Moving Wordpress from subfolder to root

  • Answered
Is it better to move the development site files (currently residing in a sub folder) to the root or point the domain name to the sub folder? It seems easier to point the domain but if it's better to move the site, what is the best way to do that?
Hello, Thanks for your question about moving your WordPress installation from a subfolder to the root directory. In a cPanel hosting service, it is typical (but not necessary) for the primary domain to have the files and folders saved in the root directory (public_html). However, it's up to you to decide on how you want your website files to be saved. For more information on moving your WordPress installation from the subfolder, check out this tutorial.
