    Default Changing Home Directory

    How can you change the home directory from public_html/ to public_html/subfolder using cpanel?

    I don't believe this is possible through cPanel.

    Why would you want to do this?

    Default Use Redirect

    You can use the redirect in cpanel to do this. Click the redirect icon and have it redirect /public_html/index.xxx TO /public_htmt/folder/index.xxx

    xxx is whatever extension your index page uses

    I want to be able to do this because I have installed a cms module in a directory in public_html and have done quite a bit of development in the subdirectory, thinking that I would be able to set a new home directory.

    I don't want to do the redirect because the name of the subdirectory is not transparent. www.mydomain.com/subdirectory/index.html shows when I would like www.mydomain.com/index.html to appear even though it is in the /subdirectory folder.

    My only option may be to re-install the cms in the public_html directory.
