I used to have a Drupal 7 installation on
var/www, but I had to move it to
var/www/drupal. The problems is that my files are still in
var/www/sites/default/files and I am unable to move them.
I need to make Drupal use that directory as default file directory (just on level above). On
admin/config/media/file-system, I tried to use absolute file path, without success. I tried to set
../sites/default/files too; it was almost successful, but now I am having problems with the image creation and caching. I have to manually load every single image style; otherwise, it does not find the file.
How can I set up a public file folder which is one folder above Drupal's root folder?
