    Newbie here. I just downloaded wordpress and the url is my domain name/wordpress. Is there a way to not have the wordpress part and have my domain be the blog? Thanks!

    You need to install it in the root - not in the folder called "wordpress". I think the Installation instructions say: upload the content of the wordpress folder, not itself.

    Anyway:

    or

    Thanks! I'll try to wade through it.

    Easier said than done for a newbie. I printed the directions above and got stuck when I couldn't open the index.php in a text editor. I'd have the free service install it, bit I do want to learn so I can apply to other domains I own.

    Is there a good tutorial/book like a WordPress for Dummies out there?

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    BTW: I uninstalled it because I became so frustrated and was worried I screwed it up!
