[resolved] 2.7 - I've moved my upload folder! HELP! (4 posts)

    I had my WP installed in a folder named WordPress. I've now installed it into the root of my site but need to know if there's an easy way to edit all the current uploads in my posts that point to /wordpress/wp-content/uploads/ to point to /wp-content/uploads/

    Is there an easy way to do this so that I can delete my WordPress folder and its content?

    Thank you for that :) I don't understand what I need to do with ln -s /path/to/new /path/to/old though... I've googled and can't find instructions where to put that...

    The way I see it, I can also search and replace the database with the new url?
