Customizing WordPress Domain (3 posts)

    I have a web site hosted through godaddy.com.

    I recently added a data base and did a manual install of wordpress.

    I have nothing posted on my site right now. But say my website is http://www.coolstuff.com. My wordpress site shows up as http://www.coolstuff.com/wordpress. Is there a way of changing my wordpress files so that wordpress site shows up when visitors type http://www.coolstuff.com without them having to add in the /wordpress as well?

    To make WordPress available at http://mydomain.com just change in Settings->General, the Blog address (URL) to http://mydomain.com and put this index.php file in your web-root folder (it is the same folder that contains the wordpress folder)

    <?php
    /* Short and sweet */
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);
    require('./wordpress/wp-blog-header.php');
    ?>

    Then update your permalinks in Settings->Permalinks.
