    Your files should still be in the same place /public_html there is no reason to change folders

    Has your host actually installed an SSL certificate for your domain or are you trying to use a shared certificate?

    As you are a client and only have access to cPanel this is one for your host to answer.

    To have SSL you must be setup on a DedicatedIP address (Something only your host can do), you have to generate a CSR (something your host should do for you) and finally after purchasing a certificate you have to have it installed (a task best left to a Host and should be done in WHM).

    The other option is if your host has shared SSL setup on the server this would look like https://secure.hostsdomain.com/~youraccountname/

    In any case all your file remain in the same directory its just the port that changes due to the fact that you use https rather than http
