How to move WHMCS from subfolder to root folder

If you are looking to move WHMCS to new folder, this post will help you understand how to do it yourself. Yesterday I did it for a client, moved from sub folder named ‘billing’ to root.

Before we move to the steps of files moving , Login to your WHMCS admin panel and change the system URL to for root, under Setup > General Settings > General > WHMCS System URL

Then move your files from inside your folder to public_html (if your are in cPanel Server).

After that I sent a mail to the customer.
