    Hi there,

    I just set up my blog at http://www.angiez.net, and the url for the blog itself is http://www.angiez.net/wordpress/. I was wondering if it's possible for me to set it up so that the url for the blog is http://www.angiez.net/blog/. Any help would be super appreciated! I have no idea what to do! Thanks so much! :)

    xoxo

    I read that page, but it's so confusing! For one thing, I can't find the .htaccess file that's mentioned there. Could someone please walk me through this? I'd really appreciate the help. :)

    Very simple. Please, follow eaxctly, step by step this:
    1. admin > Options > General: change the two URI values to whatever.com/blog
    2. Do NOT try to open your blog in a browser.
    3. In case you missed: do NOT try to open the blog :)
    4. Open your FTP client and rename the folder called "wordpress" to "blog"
    5. Now you can enjoy your blog at the new address.

    I tried it and check out what happens.

    http://www.angiez.net/blog

    Look at what the URL turns into.

    How do I Fix this?
