Temporary URL Change to Domain name for Joomla Website

If after testing Joomla on your Temporary URL you decide you would like to use it with your domain name, you'll need to follow these steps.

Note:  Please make a backup of your configuration.php file PRIOR to making these changes, just in case.
  1. Using your favorite file editor (such as thecPanel File Manager), edit the configuration.php file in your Joomla root folder and make the following changes:
    public $live_site = 'http://redwood.greenhostit.com/~yourusername/joomla';
    public $live_site = '';
  2. In our example, after making the above change, you can then would begin to access your website using http://yourdomain.com/joomla rather than http://redwood.greenhostit.com/~yourusername/joomla
