    I followed some advice for renamaming my site, changed the name in both fields (in settings/general) saved, Then went to my install folder and renamed the folder to match. Now I just get 404 errors.

    What might I do to get back?

    It came back. I don't know why.

    If anyone has any detailed info about how to change a wordpress site name , please share. I need to first understand why the site url and wordpress url are available in general settings. I don't understand the difference between them, or if either is related to the installation folder.
    Also, can anyone tell me the difference between site name and site url? The codex talks about them as though they are different.

    After I understand these things, maybe the codex regarding renaming a wp site will make sence.
