Move and rename wp-content folder

These definitions rename and move your wp-content folder. Make sure you created the folder before uploading your modified wp-config.php file. Renaming the wp-content folder increases your website security but keep in mind that many plugin developer hardcode ‘wp-content’ directory into their plugins. These plugins may break and won’t work without a manual adjustment.
