Join Jen Kramer for an in-depth discussion in this video Moving Joomla! installations from one directory to another, part of Installing and Running Joomla! 3: Local and Web-Hosted Sites.
- So as I mentioned, one of the disadvantages…of working with Joomla in a web hosted environment…is that anyone can see your site.…In the last video I showed you how to put the site…in offline mode, which is one solution to this problem,…hide the whole site behind the login.…Another solution that people commonly use…is they might put their Joomla site that's…under construction in a different directory…than the directory for the homepage of the site.…This is frequently used in a re-design process…where perhaps joomla.samoca.org has a site…that needs to be live right now, but you want…to work on a migration or a re-designed of some kind.…
So maybe you make a directory called…joomla.samoca.org/new and your site is actually…living in that folder instead while you put it together,…and then you need to move it to the root…once you're ready to launch the website.…So it's possible to move these Joomla installations…around between directories as well to solve…various problems in the web hosting environment.…So to do this you're going to want to once again…

Q: This course was updated on 05/30/2018. What changed?
A: Joomla no longer supports PHP 5.6 and lower and will issue an error message if it detects an outdated version on your host server. We added three videos that show how to resolve the error message, by updating PHP in your MAMP or WAMP stack.
