WordPress by default runs entirely inside the public document root. This is unfortunate for security reasons, but is required in order to preserve backwards compatibility. There is one exception to this, and that is the config file (wp-config.php). WordPress automatically looks for the wp-config.php file one folder above the document root, if it doesn't find it in the document root.
The document root, which is also called the web root or website root directory, is the publicly-accessible base folder for a website. It is where you'll find the index file (index.php, index.html, default.html, etc). This folder is often named public_html, htdocs, www, or wwwroot, depending on your web host and settings.
