Renaming the CakePHP root directory causes server errors

If you get an internal server error after renaming the CakePHP root directory then it’s almost certainly caused by cached copies of the models. If you change the debug settings back to 1 or 2 in Config/core.php and access the site this flushes the model cache and you can then reset the value back to 0.
