Hello @birdangry642 and welcome to the community.

Your earlier message did not contain the screenshot with the error message so we are at a loss about how to best help you.

Did you know that Virtualmin has a nice one click install script for WordPress under Virtualmin → Install Scripts? I suggest you try installing WordPress via this option.

The requested URL /demo/wp-login.php was not found on this server.
this is error line and this demo folder is deleted by client. now I am confused where is wordpress

If you are confused about where WordPress is installed on a virtual server, use Virtualmin file manger to take a peek at the files and directories which belong to the user and you will know for sure where WordPress is installed.

did you search-replace old links to /demo before setting it up in parent folder?
change homeurl and siteurl in wordpress database (_options table) and then do search-replace in whole db.
checking files too for any custom “/demo” links as well.
