    I tried upgrading to the newest version and now my website is not showing the theme! I checked it's files and the theme is still there...I backed the whole thing up, so I put the backed up theme files and replaced them with the website files and its all the same.
    My website is http://lesliepriday.com . I try to go to http://lesliepriday.com/wp-admin/ and it doesn't change pages! It stays in the same place everytime I try to access the Log In or WP-ADMIN and such. I followed the steps in the guide, I don't know whats wrong. I need help ASAP, Please.

    Thanks.

    Everything I see at your site seems to indicate that WordPress is actually installed in the the "home" sub-directory.

    Did you at some point (with the previous version) do this? Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory

    Yes.
    How can I change that? What file can be edited?

    Oh, sorry!

    Hmmm...I did that and I get:

    Warning: main(./Home/wp-blog-header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/l/e/s/lesliepriday/html/index.php on line 4
    
    Warning: main(./Home/wp-blog-header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/l/e/s/lesliepriday/html/index.php on line 4
    
    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required './Home/wp-blog-header.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/content/l/e/s/lesliepriday/html/index.php on line 4

    I did change the "wordpress" parts to home...

    UPDATE: I put the original "index.php" files in the "home" directory, and the modified "index.php" file into the root directory and it's the same!

    What if I go and undo the change in options-general.php?

    Ah, nevermind, I looked at that file and it doesn't contain the configuration.

    Ok, maybe I can get rid of the "home" directory and get back on root? What way would be easiest and fastest?

    Move the contents of "home" up a directory to your root. Make sure you're back to the default index.php file.

    Well, I did move everything and it's all the same. I didn't delete the home files. All I did is copy them over.
