- How you can rename your web application folder
- Important Notes
Renaming your web application’s folders helps you easily identify specific applications when accessing the server via SSH or SFTP.
Step 1: Select Application
Log into the Cloudways Platform with your credentials. Click on Applications in the top menu bar and then select your target application from the list.
Step 2: Rename Application Folder
Now, under the Application Management area, you can simply rename and save the folder as shown in the figure below. That’s it!
While accessing the server via SSH or SFTP you would now see two folders:
- The new folder name that you have set. This is a symlink and does not consume space, so there is nothing to worry about.
- The old folder name of your application. This is a hardlink and does not need to be removed.
