Change subfolder name

Post by japochino6276 » Wed Aug 01, 2018 8:07 am

Hello

I have installed my joomla in a subfolder. Something like this: http://mysite.com/folder_a

Can I change quietly the name of the subfolder to http://mysite.com/folder_b???

Or may I have to consider some configuration settings?

Thanks!

Yes you can change the name ... you will also need to change.
1. The tmp and logs paths in the configuration.php
2. If you have edited # RewriteBase / (in .htaccess) then you need to edit that path too.

Basically treat changing the folder name the same as if you were moving Joomla to another folder. https://docs.joomla.org/Moving_the_site ... irectories
