open site to example.com rather than example.com/blog (3 posts)

    I'm not sure what the correct terminology is for this. I installed WP into the root directory. When you go to the site it redirects to example.com/blog. Is there a way to have it just show as example.com?

    I tried some stuff on my one and manage to loss my site (thank goodness for the codex), but now I'm gun shy. So, any help will be appreciated.

    Is this is a single site install or a multisite install?

    If it's a single site install, try going to your WordPress Admin -> Settings -> General and look at the Site Address (URL) field. Is it different from the field above it (the WordPress Address (URL))?

    If it's a multisite install and you setup the network with the sub-folders option, WordPress automatically adds the /blog suffix to avoid permalink collisions. In that case, I'm not sure there's much you can do about that.

    Single site. It is the same. Thanks. I found the link URL there for how to do it. It looks like I won't be able to since I don't have access to the .htaccess file. Too bad.
