    Hi,
    I have my webspace and I want to know how to install WordPress.
    Do I ftp the WordPress folder to my webspace or do I ftp the contents of the WordPress folder to my webspace.
    Thanks
    Lewis

    Installing WordPress should have a pretty good explanation of the process. Good Luck and please return here if you have more questions after reading that doc.

    Hi,
    I read the instructions and that is why I have asked this question. The instructions do not actually answer the question or could support both answers.
    Thanks,
    Lewis

    Ah!

    If you want to access your blog as http://www.sample.com/wordpress, put the folder wordpress in your web-root folder.

    If you want to access your blog as http://www.sample.com/blog, put the wordpress folder in your web-root folder and rename the wordpress folder to blog.

    If you want to access your blog as http://www.sample.com then suggest you put the wordpress folder in your web-root folder and put this index.php file in your web-root folder:

    <?php
    /* Short and sweet */
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);
    require('./wordpress/wp-blog-header.php');
    ?>

    This particular setup is described at: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory
