directory – Could moving my WordPress installation from /var/www/html/ to /var/www/ break the application?
I’m setting up a Linode VPS with Apache 2 and Ubuntu 22. Our organization’s objective is to host a WordPress e-commerce site together with 2 internal applications within this server. While I’ve got experience with other stacks as well as Linux, I’m pretty much new to WordPress.
When I installed WordPress, I apparently created an
html directory inside
/var/www/ and inside said
html directory I created the
<vhost.com> folder that contains the actual WordPress installation.
I want to move my
var/www/, since the
html directory serves no purpose, its confusing and the other applications that’ll be deployed from this VPS will be APIs, so it’s more a “good practice” thing since they don’t actually serve HTML.
However, prior to moving the directory I want to confirm if doing this move will misconfigure any links within the WordPress installation. I haven’t done anything with the WP application besides the installation wizard (so it’s only linked to a MySQL DB and its got its own user): no plugins or anything. Still, I want to be sure.
Can I just move the
<vhost.com>directory without breaking anything inside?
