Hi. I'd like to change the name of an app that's already been created using the panel. I don't see an option to do it using the panel, so I'm wondering if I can change it via ftp by changing the folder name? If I do that will the panel still find it and associate it with the right domain?

It is not possible to change the name of an app. What you can do is create a new app of the same type, remove the contents of the new app's directory, and copy the contents of the original app's directory into the new app's directory. Then modify your website record to use the new app's name.

Hope this helps!
