    I copied all my files from the subdirectory to the root and my URL

    Everything went fine, but my url:

    http://www.crushband.net/

    kept resolving as

    http://www.crushband.net/2.0/

    So I went into settings in WP and changed the site URL to

    http://www.crushband.net/

    Now I can't login and the site is missing content.

    Thanks!

    Worked like a charm.

    Now, how do I remove the "2.0"

    Did you follow this guide, http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress when you moved wp?

    I did.

    My situation fell under the first scneraio and the first bullet point:

    If database and URL remains the same, you can move by just copying your files and database.

    I copied the entire directory up. Is the DB in that directory? If not, I did not copy that.

    No the database is in your MySQL somewhere else on the server.

    But your url did change from crushband.net/2.0/ to crushband.net
