Moving WordPress from subdirectory to root (3 posts)

    I have had my blog installed in a subdirectory and am trying to move it to the root directory of my URL. ie, from http://www.scotsheraldry.com/blog to http://www.scotsheraldry.com

    I have installed WordPress into the root directory successfully but I cannot get it to point at the old MySQL database, I just get a virgin WordPress install database. I still have the old sub directory blog installed which accesses the old database but the new one does not. What am I doing wrong?

    You need to connect the two. They don't automatically see each other. You have to tell it to point to the right place.

    This should help you out.
