How to Change the Folder of Your WordPress Website

Updated on Jun 11, 2019

Let's say you have been developing a website using the WordPress CMS in a folder called blog on When you moved the website from that folder into the public_html folder of your account the website suddenly does not open using but instead, it redirects to that subfolder again.

In that case, you should check if you've changed the URL of your WordPress prior to moving it to the new folder? You can move it back to the original folder and refer to your WordPress Admin Panel -> Settings section and change the URL. After you've done that, move the website again to the desired location. Otherwise you will need to edit the database to apply the new URL.
