Moving Shop From A Subfolder


Recommended Posts

Hi. Newbie here with a quick question:

 

I've installed Prestashop in a subfolder on my website host, so that I can keep my current site running while I build the new shop. When it's ready, can I just move all the files to the root directory, or does it need to be actually installed in the root for it to work there?

 

Thanks in advance.

it should be a simple matter,

 

back office-->preferences-->seo urls

 

scroll down to set shop url

 

set the base uri, to the folder containing your new shop...

 

this way you would not really need to move it from the subfolder...you simply change the base uri to point to the new shop...then falling back if there was something wrong with your new shop..you would just replace the base uri back, probably to /

 

regardless, if you move the files to your root...then you would not need to change anything....

OK, so I've just moved all the files to the root directory, and changed the urls in preferences-->seo urls. The index page loads when I type my website address, but, apart from the image slider, product images are not being displayed and product and category links are broken. What do I need to do?

 

TIA

 

Website is www.premsig.com. I moved the files from http://potcake.premsig.com
