Why app/public when sites pulled from wpengine?

When we pull sites from wpengine, they are put in app/public folders. This is not ideal because we also use git and need the wordpress install to be the normal, off the root of the repo, wp file structure. Can we tell localwp to not make app/public and just put content in / ?

Hey @cschaub

There isn’t any way to do this within Local because the sitename that’s used in the folder structure is meant to hold other things like configuration and logs for the site.

Because of this, app/public is the folder that’s used for the actual site code. You should be able to clone the git repo to this location and have things still work out.

If you do run into issues can you describe in a little more detail how the git repo is set up so we can offer some pointers?
