How to move connections folder

How to move connections folder

Dear Jason,
I have read that the connections folder should not be placed in a public_htm folder with my hosting company. Because my site is a subdomain linked to my main domain, I will have to set my connections folder up two levels.

I started to move the connections folder, but then I noticed that it affected 'universal email' - I had to recreate the 'links to the form' in server behaviours. But when I did this, it created another folder called Webassist, with all the various associated files - so now I had two webassist folders - one in my web folder and one outside the web folder - see attached pdf with the two webassist folders highlighted in yellow.

I said 'stop - before I do anymore damage'.

My Question.
How do I move the connections folder up two levels in dreamweaver without messing up everything. The connections folder was originally at <?php require_once('Connections/CommSimpleRegister.php'); ?>, but I manually adjusted the code and added ../ to the code <?php require_once('../Connections/CommSimpleRegister.php'); ?>

But for security, it must be up another level, because the connections folder has to go in the '/' location - just above 'public_html'. As I said above, what is the safest way to do this without messing-up everything

I hope this makes sense.

there is no reason why the connections folder should be moved.

the files are php files, the connections information cannot be seen by accessing the php files directly.

the only way for someone to see the connection details is to access the files using FTP, if they can access the files using FTP, it doesn't matter if they are in the site root or not they will be seen either way.

Okay, that's good enough for me. Hopefully that's everything relating to this form, and now it can go live in the next day or two. We covered a lot of ground - thanks once again to you and your colleague Ray.
