I'm extremely new to Craft CMS - I'm trying to install it on to a Cpanel as a test, upon downloading the CMS is gives you all the folders for craft, and then a separate /web folder.

If you move the contents of the /web folder outside of this, it causes an error. I've also tried moving the craft installation up one level, and then taking the contents of the /web folder out, but this also errors. am I missing something extremely obvious?

It's currently set up as a sub domain:


I'm looking to make it like this:


But as you can see that takes me to just the directory.

Sorry for the silly question!
