I performed the following:
I already have WordPress installed in its own folder (i.e. http://example.com/wordpress):
Go to the General panel.
In the box for Site address (URL): changed the address to the root directory's URL. to: http://example.com
Copied index.php from /var/www/wordpress/ to root
Opend your root directory's index.php file in a text editor
Change the following and save the file. Change the line that says:

Logged in site OK.
Any additional sugestions?
