    Hello.

    I want to move my wp site from a subfolder to my root and I tried following this guide:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress
    "On Your Existing Server"

    But when trying to access domain.com/wp-login.php after I change the url in general --> settings and moving the files to the root directory I only get a blank page - no 404 error or anything.

    When I access the database the url has been changed in wp_options table...

    What to do???

    Please read my previous reply : http://wordpress.org/support/topic/slash-needed-when-moving-wp-to-the-root?replies=4#post-3674304

    Following the steps serially is very important, otherwise it will get messy.
    Do not do anything manually with database for this thing.

    You already messed it up, so revert back to subfolder installation from backup. Then try in the mentioned way.
