Could you point how must be maped cPanel's folder's structure to an IDE and what possibly could be done to change the default folder to www at cPanel?

Hi Experts

Could you point how must be maped cPanel's folder's structure to an IDE  and what possibly could be done to change the default folder to www at cPanel?

By using cPanel the folder's structure is that:
img002
If I click the "home icon" the default folder, acordingly with thw picture is now www
img003
Even that,  I can charge only PHP pages that remains at  public_html folder
img004
To complicate too much my own PHP IDE  (PHPDesigner) just could see from "espiriplug" folder to down... so the pages are not reachable and I had to use cPanel text editor (not very good)


I read elsewhere www is an public_html alias, but not on my case since everithing I paste in public_html is not reflected in www and my IDE couldn't access...

Am I misconcepting something?

Any workaround on this?


Thanks in advance!

It has nothing to do with Cpanel.  'public_html' is the standard root directory for a web site on Apache.  If you are on shared hosting, you will not be able to change it.  Even if you are on private hosting, you probably shouldn't change it.  Some installations like WAMP use 'www' or 'htdocs' for the web root but even there, it is generally Not your choice.

Ok.
Hard to configure my IDE to map  public_html folder.

Well

My PHP IDE and Filezilla maps to an internal folder.

I formulated a more specific question about it.

FTP folders read from IDE and Filezilla
