The git command to download Galaxy should work from any file system/path that you have permission to write to. Meaning: you can decide where to download and install Galaxy.
If this is a new instance, and you do not want or need to set up a more complex server (advanced configuration) starting over would be the simplest way forward.
Or if you instead want to set up the environment in a custom way (set up specific, different places to put data, run jobs, etc), then please see the help here for advanced configuration: https://docs.galaxyproject.org/en/master/admin/index.html. Even more help for specific tasks can be found in our admin training materials here: https://github.com/galaxyproject/dagobah-training
Or if you have a server that has been running a while and losing that work would create a problem, the final option is actually move the server base location. This involves some technical steps -- so administrator help on your side would be good (unless you are the admin :).
This is one discussion about the topic: http://dev.list.galaxyproject.org/moving-galaxy-instance-to-different-location-td4663076.html. Others can be reviewed using the search here https://galaxyproject.org/search/#gsc.tab=0 with keywords like "move galaxy server".
Hope that helps! Jen, Galaxy team
