The webroot in production should be install_root/pub instead of install_root that removes access to setup and all other application code directories.


Don't delete this folder. It is important for install components, modules, and extensions, upgrade your installation, and change the system configuration.

check web wizard go to Magento backend. System > Tools > Web Setup Wizard
