    I am currently running WP at a certain directory website.com/wp and I would like to have it at the root directly website.com/ can I do this without reinstalling?

    Login.
    Change the URL's in Options to the new address
    Logout
    Move all the files
    Login.
    That's all there is to it.

    If though you want the WP files to stay where they are but have website.com/ look as if wp is there, that is a different thing.

    Just wondering, with 2.0, should we recommend deleting the wp-content/cache folder before copying the files? Or does it matter?

    Oh dear ... the cache strikes again. It probably does matter, and removing the cache causes no issues.

    I think I'll change Moving_WordPress#Moving_WordPress_Within_Your_Site to reflect that. Thanks.
