[resolved] Change URL for My Site (2 posts)

    Working on a site called http://www.ConwayandWhitman.com.

    I did not build or implement the site from the beginning, I just came in later to help manage it. There was a previous version of the site, not on WordPress, and now they are using WP, but all of the WP files are in a file called "newsite" on the server, so now when you go to http://www.conwayandwhitman.com, it automatically redirects to "www.conwayandwhitman.com/newsite."

    I want the site to go back to only "www.conwayandwhitman.com". Is this as simple as changing the WP URL and Blog URL in the "Settings" menu within WordPress? Do I need to change anything else? This isn't domain forwarding since they are not using a different domain, but how do I change this?

    Thanks!

    Hi

    No you can't just change those settings. You will break the site.

    Here are the official instructions
