    go to your WordPress folder and copy all data to your public html folder.

    in your database you need to change the link from http://www.lighthouserestaurantanddockbar.com/wordpress/

    to
    http://www.lighthouserestaurantanddockbar.com/

    and also change the path

    remove the /wordpress/ from the path

    you can use this plugin for export your database and change the link and as well as the path remove the /wordpress.

    and export your database then go to your databse and import it.

    by installing this plugin you can fint out its under tools migrate db

    plugin url is here.

    You will not have an .htaccess file unless you are using non-default permalinks. Also ensure that your FTP client is configured to show all files. Most clients hide this file by default.

    hello,

    have you copy all folders and file inside in your wordpress folder to your root folder?

    Did you remember to copy (not move) the index.php and .htaccess files to root?
