Hello Rogersa,

You will need to move the Joomla installation up to the main directory in order to display it as your and not

1. Move all of the files and folders from your Joomla folder to the root directory. In your case from public_html/subfolder to public_html

2. Reconfigure your settings in your application. You will need to edit your configuration.php file and make the following changes:

Change from: var $log_path = '/home/user/public_html/subfolder/logs';
To: var $log_path = '/home/user/public_html/logs';

Change from: var $tmp_path = '/home/user/public_html/subfolder/tmp';
To: var $tmp_path = '/home/user/public_html/tmp';

Change from: var $ftp_root = '/public_html/subfolder';
To: var $ftp_root = '/public_html';

Change from: var $live_site = '';
To: var $live_site = '';

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more questions or information specific to the issue please leave a comment below so we can further assist you.
