Domains: Change Addon/Sub Domain’s Website Folder

Comments Off on Domains: Change Addon/Sub Domain’s Website Folder

When you were adding additional or sub domains you were asked to specify a folder for the website to live in. This folder is called the document root and the website operates out of here. Maybe while the website was operating out of that folder, you were actively working on a new version of the website in a different folder and now you want to point the addon/sub domain to this new folder so it is now the live version of your website. Sure no problem!
