Where Are WooCommerce Files Located?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 4:31 pm

WooCommerce is a popular eCommerce platform that allows users to sell online. If you’re thinking of using WooCommerce to sell products or services, you may be wondering where the WooCommerce files are located.

The answer is that WooCommerce files are located in the WordPress content directory. This is the same directory that contains your WordPress theme and plugin files.

If you’re not familiar with the WordPress content directory, it’s simply the directory where all of your WordPress files are stored. You can access it via FTP or through your hosting control panel.

PRO TIP: The WooCommerce plugin for WordPress stores files in the WordPress content directory by default. However, it is possible to change the location of these files by changing the ‘WooCommerce File Path’ setting in the WooCommerce settings page.

Changing the default location of WooCommerce files is not recommended unless you are an experienced WordPress user and you understand the implications of doing so. Incorrectly changing this setting can cause errors on your website.

Once you locate the WooCommerce files, you’ll be able to edit them as needed. For example, if you want to change the way your products are displayed, you can edit the product template file.

Of course, before you make any changes to your WooCommerce files, it’s always a good idea to back up your site first. That way, if anything goes wrong, you can restore your site to its previous state.

Now that you know where the WooCommerce files are located, you can start selling products and services with confidence!
