I am using the Contus GroupClone add on in magento, for some reason i installed their packet into the magento/ folder on my server, site works somewhat fine but the issue i am having is the index page has to be one that i put up ( rather than a default index.php page that is displaying the “todays deals”. What i want is for this to be the index page without the “magento/” in the url string

Below is the response i recieved from Contus which is very vague on how to move the files...when i follow their directions my site goes offline and shows error pages

Answer : here the thing is you have installed the magento in folder magento in root now go to your Cpanel and open the magento folder and copy all the files and paste in root which is outside magento so your link will be like

What is the process step by step to do this correctly?

a note about my hosting i have for this install: my daily deal site is a add-on domain to my hosting plan and not the main domain i purchased hosting for? does this matter?

Thank you
