The cd command is used to change directories from the terminal:

nmurgor@nmurgor:~$ cd www/myblog
# switched to www/myblog


The cd command switches the current working directory to the specified www/myblog from (~) which resolves to the user’s home path.

Note: The directory to change to should be a valid directory and should be an absolute or relative path. Learn about absolute and relative paths in this article
