    So I have a wordpress installed in a root of my website for example mywebsite.com and I am trying to get it so that I could have an Intro Page as my Main Page for this I will need to move wordpress site to mywebsite.com/site/ and have an intro page I made to be in the main root directory on mywebsite.com/

    I followed this instructions (Giving WordPress Its Own Directory) What I found here is that once I finished the steps all I did was really move the wp-admin section to mywebsite.com/site/wp-admin and whenever I go to mywebsite.com/ it would point to the same root directory and not to the mywebsite.com/site/ directory (that i know of).

    So at this stage if I visit mywebsite.com/site I just get "HTTP Error 500" I thought that if I did this process I would have the site running in a sub directory mywebsite.com/site which is what I want instead I just have the wp-admin running in a mywebsite.com/site/wp-admin.

    Anyways if there is a way can someone please help me out a bit and point me to the right direction on what am trying to do.

    I eventually would just like to have a Intro Page or AKA a Splash Page to be in my root directory mywebsite.com/ and when the splash or intro page is finished playing to go to the wordpress site that would be in mywebsite.com/site

    Thanks!

    You will need to install your entire WP site in the subdirectory, not just WP itself. Once that is done, you can use this tutorial on how to create a landing page so set up a landing page in the root.
