I follow this two tutorials. Initial Server Setup with Ubuntu 16.04 and How To Install WordPress with LAMP on Ubuntu 16.04 The only think that I’m afraid is to destroy the Wordpress if I moving it.

Depending on your webserver, the minimum would be to change the DocumentRoot (with Apache) or root (with nginx). See the tutorials on creating virtual hosts for Apache on Ubuntu 16.04 and NGINX on Ubuntu 16.04
