Locating your Magento root folder

The location of the Magento root folder depends on where you originally installed Magento, and is also driven by your webhosting company. Common folder locations to check are: 

  • /public_html 
  • /www 
  • /var/www/ 
  • /home/YOURUSERNAME/www 
  • /home/YOURUSERNAME/public_html 
  • /srv/ 

You know you’ve found the right folder when you see the following subfolders: 

  • app 
  • downloader 
  • errors 
  • includes 

If you can’t find the Magento root folder, get in touch with your  webhosting  company and ask them to help you locate it. In most cases, it is the same as the document root.
