I recently installed WordPress MU +Buddypress into a folder on my Godaddy server called "theartillerist.com", The base or root URL is http://respectablepress.com, so the exact path to this folder would be http://respectablepress.com/theartillerist.com.
I did this for testing purposes, I thought after I tested the installation in that path, that I could later on point the domain I own "theartillerist.com" to that folder, so it would only be http://theartillerist.com. After I pointed the domain to that folder, I still see the exact path in the URL and not the URL I want i.e. theartillerist.com
I am wondering if this is a .htaccess problem? I have a deluxe account with Godaddy, but they refuse to help me with any .htaccess files. So, I am turning to the WordPress community for any help:)
