    Hi - I was wondering if anyone can point me to a place where I can request an update to a specific page in the Codex that is out-dated? Thanks!

    if this seems to be too complex for one edit, you can post details here of what needs to be changed where in the Codex

    I was just looking over how to back up my database using phpmyadmin on this Codex page: http://codex.wordpress.org/Backing_Up_Your_Database

    The directions are based on version 2.5.3 of phpmyadmin, and my server is running 3.4.9 - so it is hard to tell if I have all the settings done correctly based on the Codex page examples.

    I am not skilled enough to contribute to the Codex knowledge base, just wanted to request that this gets added to the list. Thanks very much for your help!

    Hi, I also wanted to request an update for "Giving WordPress Its Own Directory" codex page.

    I followed the steps for "Using a pre-existing subdirectory install". It did not work until I contacted my host provider "Bluehost".

    For Bluehost specifically these are the alternations:

    - No need to copy index.php to the root directory
    - .htaccess file, when copied from subdirectory to the root directory needs following updates:
    https://my.bluehost.com/cgi/help/347 - "Modifying the .htaccess"
    ----------------cut and paste from the link above -----------------
    Modifying the .htaccess

    You will want to insert the following code block and make modifications as noted in the (#) comments. You will need to change the two instances of example.com to your domain, and the three instances of subdirectory to the folder where you want your site.

    # BlueHost.com
    # .htaccess main domain to subdirectory redirect
    # Copy and paste the following code into the .htaccess file
    # in the public_html folder of your hosting account
    # make the changes to the file according to the instructions.
    # Do not change this line.
    RewriteEngine on
    # Change example.com to be your main domain.
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?example.com$
    # Change 'subdirectory' to be the directory you will use for your main domain.
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/subdirectory/
    # Don't change these line.
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    # Change 'subdirectory' to be the directory you will use for your main domain.
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /subdirectory/$1
    # Change example.com to be your main domain again.
    # Change 'subdirectory' to be the directory you will use for your main domain
    # followed by / then the main file for your site, index.php, index.html, etc.
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?example.com$
    RewriteRule ^(/)?$ subdirectory/index.html [L]

    ---------------------END cut and paste---------------------------------

    With these 2 alternations the codex instruction works.
