www vs. public folder InMotionFans 9 years ago Answered I have been told by someone optimizing our site that our files should be in the www and not the public folder. I didnt know this was possible? He claims it is like having multiple copies of the same page.
wwwfile is simply a symbolic link to the main
/public_htmlfolder. These can also be called a symlink, or a soft link. The
wwwsymbolic link could be deleted and the target directory of
/public_htmlwould remain unaffected. However if you deleted the
/public_htmldirectory, when you went to try to access the
wwwsymbolic link, it would cease to function because the target it was linking to no longer existed. Hope that helps clear things up. Please let us know if you had any further questions at all! - Jacob
