How to Change OpenCart Installation Folder?

Approx. read time : 2 min

Let’s assume that you have installed the OpenCart at https://www.myopencartstore.com/shop and you want to move it to https://www.myopencartstore.com/eshop

To move the OpenCart from one folder to other, you will have to edit the following two files.

http://www.myopencartstore.com/shop/configure.php

and

http://www.myopencartstore.com/shop/admin/configure.php

In both these files, you will find following lines that should be modified:

// HTTP

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://myopencartstore.com/newfolder');

define('HTTP_IMAGE', 'http://myopencartstore.com/newfolder/image/');

define('HTTP_ADMIN', 'http://myopencartstore.com/newfolder/admin/');

// HTTPS

define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'http://myopencartstore.com/newfolder/');

define('HTTPS_IMAGE', 'http://myopencartstore.com/newfolder/image/');

// DIR

define('DIR_APPLICATION', '/home/username/public_html/newfolder/catalog/');

define('DIR_SYSTEM', '/home/username/public_html/newfolder/system/');

define('DIR_DATABASE', '/home/username/public_html/newfolder/system/database/');

define('DIR_LANGUAGE', '/home/username/public_html/newfolder/catalog/language/');

define('DIR_TEMPLATE', '/home/username/public_html/newfolder/catalog/view/theme/');

define('DIR_CONFIG', '/home/username/public_html/newfolder/system/config/');

define('DIR_IMAGE', '/home/username/public_html/newfolder/image/');

define('DIR_CACHE', '/home/username/public_html/newfolder/system/cache/');

define('DIR_DOWNLOAD', '/home/username/public_html/newfolder/download/');

define('DIR_LOGS', '/home/username/public_html/newfolder/system/logs/');

In the above lines replace myopencartstore.com with your domain name, username with cPanel username and new folder with the directory name where your OpenCart is installed.
