after /home/m32d/ it can be changed

Else your hosting will have to create user secure and make changes in httpd.conf

You will need to change username for the cpanel account, once you have changed it you will need to make changes in /etc/passwd file through shell and change the home directory. You will also need to change the document path in httpd.conf file............

Hey ,

this can be done by changing the document root on the httpd.conf for apache webserver.
