    Cryptik, I just did that two days ago...
    open index.php and on line one change <?php /* Don't remove this line. */ require('./wp-blog-header.php'); ?>
    to
    <?php /* Don't remove this line. */ require('./directory1/wp-blog-header.php'); ?>
    Then go to WP admin, Options, and change Blog URI to http://www.you.com/directory1/
    Finally, upload your new index.php to directory 1 and that should do it...let me know if you reach any errors.

    Ok changed the folder name and its location. I have edited to index and uploaded the new one.
    It works on the index
    however when I try to login it doesnt redirect me ... It stays on the login page.
    and the permalinks for the posts still point to the old sub directory so nothing loads.
    Im sure it is something really easy... that my crossed eyes are missing :)
    Thanks

    Cryptik, heh, I was wondering why you were encountering that problem until I read your last post...heh, glad you got it moved correctly and that all is working (Just remember, if you make changes to files other than the index (for example, the .css) you'll need to upload them to the wordpress directory, and NOT root...index changes of course SHOULD be made to root. Maybe you can post a link to your site for us to check out. Glad you got it fixed without having to use a redirect..this way is much cleaner :) Cya!
