What is the difference between ‘public_html’ and ‘www’?

Updated 3 months ago by Theo Chu

Simply put, "www" is a symbolic link, or a mirror for the public_html folder. 'public_html' is the actual file that is being used in this instance. Because of this, anytime you are making changes, you should be doing it on public_html due to it being an actual file, whereas "www" is only a symbolic link.
