Joomla. How to move your website to different location

In this tutorial you will learn how to move your Joomla template to different directory.

  1. Go to your Joomla installation folder and copy all the files, move it to the folder you need.
  2. Open your new folder with Joomla. Edit configuration.php file within your joomla root folder.
  3. Scroll down and edit all the instances of previous folder – remove it and make the links look properly

    For example, your bottom links should look like:

        public $log_path = '/home/mgreen/public_html/phil/joomla/subfolder/logs';
    	public $tmp_path = '/home/mgreen/public_html/phil/joomla/subfolder/tmp';

    After you move your files from folder “subfolder” to folder “joomla” you should make it look like:

        public $log_path = '/home/mgreen/public_html/phil/joomla/logs';
    	public $tmp_path = '/home/mgreen/public_html/phil/joomla/tmp';
  4. Check your .htaccess. The subfolder should be removed there as well.
  5. If you have cache enabled, login to the administrator backend (which will now be at http://www.yoursite.com/administrator and not http://www.yoursite.com/subfolder/administrator). Go to Site->Maintenance-> Clear Cache and delete all cache files.
