    Hi Friends,

    I need an urgent help as I'm unable to direct my site to http://www.mysite.com from http://www.mysite.com/wordpress. I've used Freehostia's installer for wordpress.

    I've tried all tricks (given I've limitation not being a technical geek)but it's not working.

    Any help will be highly acknowledged for our non-profit site.

    Regards,
    Sudeep

    The easiest solution would be to move all of the contents of the wordpress folder into the public html folder. Other than that, depending on your level of access to the server you can edit the virtualhost file to point to that directory, or create an .htaccess file to rewrite the url. If you are using a shared host though, this may not be possible.

    Hi Cynnie,

    Thank you for your quick response.

    I would like to know where is this folder (public.html) located?

    Also I do have access to .htaccess but I want to do it as easy as possible.

    So would prefer the former solution.

    Thanks once again and seeking ur valued consultation once again.

    Regards,
    Sudeep

    Well it may be called something else, but what I'm trying to say it remove the wordpress folder completely and put all of the contents in the parent directory (whatever folder houses the wordpress folder).

    You will have to run a search and replace on the database to remove the wordpress directory from any references. Or reinstall the database if there is no data yet.

    I really know what the situation with your host is though, and you may have to remove any conflicting index documents out of the directory.

    On second thought a simple .htaccess rewrite might be an easier solution.

    It might be easier to understand if you link the site, or tell me more about the problem and if your using a shared-host or virtual server / cloud server.
