What is a root folder?
Root folder (or root directory) is the top-level directory of a file system. It contains your store’s source code and all other files.
When setting up a migration with LitExtension, you need to upload our connector to your store’s root folder.
How to find your store’s root folder?
In most cases, your store’s root folder is located in the “home” folder.
However, if you can’t find it, please use the path “/sub_folder/site_root_folder” to access directly to your root directory.
Example: This PrestaShop store is located in the “source_carts/prestashop” folder.
