We do not currently have an article on it, but here are the steps you would take:
  1. Export your database.

  2. Create a new directory inside your public_html directory using the cPanel File Manager

  3. Copy your PrestaShop files inside that directory.

  4. Create a new database and user.

  5. Import the database you previously exported into the new database.

  6. Configure PrestaShop to use the new database and user.

  7. Direct PrestaShop to the new directory.
