    My word press is currently set up at my domain as jss692.com/wp. It is public but was only given out to a few people. Someone gave it out. Is there anyway to change my URL for the WP without loosing my work?

    I suggest that you back up your database, then change the url to a new one for your wordpress, and then alter the data to your new url. This can be accomplished by reading the following two guides:

    http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/site-url/

    Hope that helps. My advice is to possibly make it a private journal if you don't want everyone to see it. Here are some plugins to help you get started.

    spirit892 has given you some good advice here, depending on your level of knowledge there are a number of ways this can be done.

    You can 'copy' all your folder and d/b then make a few manaual changes and you'll be good to go.
