    Okay, my wordpress site is presently a page at my website.

    http://julianoelgoldman.com/wordpress/

    I need help in changing this situation so the url http://julianoelgoldman.com/ brings up my wordpress site and my original website is hidden.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Hello again! I can't even follow the first two steps of that at my godaddy ftp site. Can't find the general panel or the place to change the site address. And godaddy has no interest in assisting with this--ha. :)

  4. The first 2 steps have to do with the WordPress back end.
    So in your admin, you need to go to settings > general and change the site url.

    You do need FTP access though. So I would make sure that you have that. Once you have that info, I would suggest using a tool like filezilla to FTP to your site. The Go daddy cpanel is a nightmare to navigate.

    Okay, I'm getting there. I believe I've completed the steps and now get:

    Warning: require_once(/home/content/X/e/n/Xenara/html/jng/wp-load.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/X/e/n/Xenara/html/jng/wp-blog-header.php on line 12

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/content/X/e/n/Xenara/html/jng/wp-load.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php') in /home/content/X/e/n/Xenara/html/jng/wp-blog-header.php on line 12

    Really appreciate the advice!

    Have you set a redirection to the domain ?

    Hi Gaurav,

    I'm not sure. How do I do that? I'm pretty illiterate when it comes to this stuff...

    Ok go to your cpanel which your server provided and find redirection there . Then create a redirection of folder to root domain

    Still not clear enough for me to understand--there's no option that says redirect and I don't know where to find it. I'm not even 100% sure what a root domain is. :)

    Crap, still not working.

    I did this

    set a redirect of http://julianoelgoldman.com to http://julianoelgoldman.com/wordpress/

    I'll watch the video later. Think I'm too tired to continue tonight.

    Thanks!

    I tried the above before, and it doesn't work 'cause you can't redirect a website to a page of a website. I think I need to rename my blog the original wordpress url it has--don't know what that is--and then try this from there. I think I may have messed things up.

    I can't get into my wordpress admin page, so I don't know how I can give it it's own url and then forward the website to the wordpress site????
