How can I move Joomla from a subfolder to the main domain?

  • Answered
Hey. I'm new to this website thing and I am not technically savvy, so I apologize if this is a really dumb question.

My domain is When you go to that page, you get an Inmotion Hosting page that tells me to replace it with my index.htm page. If I use URL, I can see the site I'm in the process of building.

How do I make my site show up by only typing

Hi OLPAadmin, Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. You've installed Joomla in it's own directory called "joomla" so thats why you have to go to to see your website. You can move all the files in the joomla folder to the public_html folder (the folder that the joomla folder is inside). You can use any FTP program or file manager in cPanel to do so. Here's a link to an article on how to use file manager in cPanel. Then you'll need to adjust some settings in the configuration.php file. You'll need to adjust:

public $log_path = '/home/omahal6/public_html/joomla/logs'; public $tmp_path = '/home/omahal6/public_html/joomla/tmp';


public $log_path = '/home/omahal6/public_html/logs'; public $tmp_path = '/home/omahal6/public_html/tmp';

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us. Thanks! Tim S
