WP allows installation in root or sub folder /wpname.
It also allows naming front and blog default pages.
What is best way to autostart WP from http://domain.com if located in /wpname?
If redirecting with index.php in root, hijackers can have fun.
If with 301 redirect in .htaccess, my host support says is not reliable in Linux/apache.
And does Google search mind such redirection?
