Red face why are downloded folders saved in /lib and not /var/www?


Hi,

Regards

I am not sure how you managed to download anything into /lib! That indicates more problems than you have indicated.

How did you download it? Browser, shell command... how?

Unless everything is ina single directory under /lib, moving it may be more problematic.

So for starters, let's figure out how they got there then determine what to do with them.

Astrogeek.

Thanks for your reply. I used sudo apt-get install wordpress on the command line. I have since read wordpress codex and it seems that is not the way to go. Now reading lots more.

Although my problem has not been solved per se, I think this thread can be closed.

Many thanks.
