You can do it in following way:
Open the file /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf using any text editor (vi or nano)and go to the virtualhost section of the domain name for which you want to change the DocumentRoot.
Replace the following line
DocumentRoot /home/username/public_html (username is your actual cpanel username)
with new one
Save the file.
Restart the apache service using following command
# /etc/init.d/httpd restart
You also need to run the command below which will run the cPanel Apache Distiller. This will prevent cPanel and Apache from removing any changes you made whenever Apache gets recompiled.
# /usr/local/cpanel/bin/apache_conf_distiller --update
