As long as you backup EVERYTHING, you should be ok. I would recommend using your host's backup services; if something turns really bad, you can always ask them to put the last backed up files on. In addition, I would recommend doing full backups (files+Database) everytime you make a change. And, if you can use version control on your server, even better.

It's working fine for me. Edit config/config.inc.php and temporarily change 'display_errors' from 'off' to 'on'. That should give you an error message instead of a blank page. Post the error message here.

I have the same problem.
Here is the error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function mb_convert_encoding() in /home/viroti/public_html/catalog/classes/Tools.php on line 1334

You can change the path by going to the Preferences tab, changing the "PS directory" from /site/p/ to /site/ then move all the files from /site/p to /site/ and PrestaShop should work from the new location. You can't move the files from within the installer. It will assume the files are in the same directory. If anything goes wrong, you can edit the "PS directory" manually by editing config/settings.inc.php and editing the __PS_BASE_URI__ value.

Thank you for the reply Rocky. I decided to just try it out myself, and luckily i figured it out pretty fast. Now my store is located closer to the root folder. Like you described, all I needed to change was the settings.inc.php.
