Removing /wordpress from URL (3 posts)

    Hi, does anyone know how to remove /Wordpress from URL?

    For example..
    I would like to have my blog URL read
    My domain.co.uk/blog rather than
    Domain.co.uk/Wordpress/blog

    Would doing this stop my site from getting hacked?
    I understand it's something to do with the root directory - but not sure
    Can anyone point me in the right direction

    No. What version of WordPress are you running? Have you reviewed Hardening_WordPress? Or read http://blog.sucuri.net/2012/03/wordpress-understanding-its-true-vulnerability.html
