WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I'm using a custom WordPress release called Bedrock. It's a WordPress installation that uses the root folder to set environment variables and track everything. The actual site exists in a folder named web. Normally I'd edit the virtual host for the domain to point that folder (instead of redirecting) to the web folder. What's the best way to do this with web faction? Anyway to do it through the interface that I'm not seeing? Is SSH the way to go?

The recommended way would be to create a Symbolic Link application. Once you install your Wordpress application you would then create a new Symbolic Link application via the Control Panel and put the following in the Extra Info while creating it.

/home/username/webapps/wordpressapplicationname/web/

You would then mount your new symbolic app at / for your website. Please make sure you replace the username and application name as that can not be edited after it is created.
