Question

Ubuntu website folder

I have used this tutorial to install everything: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-launch-your-site-on-a-new-ubuntu-12-04-server-with-lamp-sftp-and-dns

But now I want to test and set up a website. I use sftp to connect. I go to this folder: /var/www/ Then there is a folder html where the “index.html” file is with the ubuntu info.

How can I change the html folder to an different name?

Edit the virtualhost file in <code>/etc/apache2/sites-enabled</code> and set <code>DocumentRoot</code> to whatever path you like.

Oke and how can I do that? It’s all new for me.

Hello, <br> <br>If you follow the instructions under apache2 in the LAMP section of the guide above: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-on-ubuntu <br> <br>You will reach a point where it shows the directory that apache2 will look for the website content. You can change this to a different path or whatever folder you would like. Restart apache and the server should point to the new location.
