    Not Found

    The requested URL /wordpress/CWERadio/Welcome.html was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I'm pretty much a novice at WordPress and learning the old fashion way, trial and error. I did a stupid thing today and attempting to copy the contents of the wordpress folder from my test site to the root (yes, I didn't RTFM, thought it wouldn't hurt anything). I also had an interruption when copying because my gut stated it was a bad idea after the fact. Now I cannot get to my test site (cweradio.com/wordpress) as it forwards to my main site's "Welcome" page.

    Is this something within the MySQL DB that needs to be changed, or something in the .php files that it's pointing to this area?

    Please be gentle, I'm a WordPress n00b :)

    Make sure the files are all where they staretd

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL
    Then get the URL back to original

    (I usually do it directly in the DB)

    And then...

    Thanks for the feedback - what I actually found (after I had copied back all the correct files/folders mid week) was that in the process of switching OS from my web hosting site, the index file was moved to another folder, once I moved it back everything worked again. Thank you for the feedback though - I'm sure my case, to a point, will be a one off.
