    Originally when I installed to my domain it was uploaded to http://example.com/wordpress. I wanted to move my wp files to my root directory, but obviously didn't read first to see exactly how easy this really is.

    In the Settings area, in the box for WordPress address (URL): I changed it to my root. Example: http://example.com/

    Then, I also changed the box for Site address (URL): changed the address to the root directory's URL. Example: http://example.com

    Clicked Save Changes.

    I received this error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_VARIABLE in /home/content/32/7448932/html/wp-content/plugins/gravityforms/gravityforms.php on line 79

    Now, the site is available to the public, but no one can sign in. Since I changed both to the root, I cannot access the admin area in example.com/wordpress directory either because after Login it points to the root...

    you need to move the files to root, or at least the index, and set it up to look for the rest of the files in /wordpress

    http://vudu.me/url

    has a writeup on URL changes, and links to all the codex articles for good measure

    You are off to an OK start

    The first step IS changing the URLs, and you will most likely get some sort of errors when you do that.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL for the login problem.

    For the error go to the plugin folder via ftp or by logging into your hosted account and rename the gravityforms plugin.
