I'm in a bit of a predicament. I'm a WordPress newbie with a background in Design so I was delighted to be able to create websites using wordpress. I loaded up WordPress onto the site and I think my hosting package created a default "WordPress" folder. (www.mysite.com/wordpress) I created the website and everything is working fine when I viewed the site through wordpress but I needed to get it into the root folder.
Now this is when everything went wrong. I looked for the tutorials on moving your site to the root folder and followed the instructions as closely as I could (http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress) but when I tried to log back into wordpress I got Error 404.
So I went back to the forums and found that this happens a lot. I looked through the tutorials and found one on changing your URLs manually (http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL) to get back into the admin panel. I tried this and got error message 500.
I had downloaded the site before I started making changes in case something like this happened and attempted to upload the original site (before all the URL changes were made) but after I uploaded it I'm still getting Error 404.
I know I have done something simple and stupid but I haven't a clue where to start.
Please tell me I haven't wiped the full site.
