What is the Document-Root?
This is the directory where your site lives, and where you should put your index.php or index.html file. The default settings are as follows:
For the main site (mywebsite.com in this example):
for any subdomians of that site (mysubdomain.mywebsite.com in this example):
How can I change my website's document-root?
This can be done through the Brownrice Dashboard! Steps:
- Click 'VPSs' then 'Mange' next to your VPS.
- Click 'Websites'
- Scroll to your website, and click (edit) next to the Document Root.
- Type in a directory name and click 'Save'. Note that if the directory doesn't exist, clicking 'Save' will also create the directory automatically.
- Important: You will also need to change the document-root for the two SSL versions of your site (www and without www.)
