    If you follow exactly the steps below, it should work!

    1. admin > Options > General: change the 2 URI values to
    http:// www .oyehoy.com/blog (without spaces)
    Save options. (You will get a 404 but don't worry)
    2. vith your FTP program create the folder called "blog"
    3. Move all your WP files into the new "blog" folder

    Warning: Do not try to see your blog during the whole process!

    4. When doone, the blog should be at yourdomain.com/blog

    ALL the WP files and folders. Everything.
    I assume you have a copy of WP files on your computer - so take a look what are the files and folders there.

    Hello, Changing my URL from http://www.tonyblairthewildernessyears.co.uk/wordpress to http://www.holditupforridicule.com has gone wrong. I have the new domain set up, and I followed the principle of the Changing URL thread below:

    1. admin > Options > General: change the 2 URI values to
    http:// www .oyehoy.com/blog (without spaces)
    Save options. (You will get a 404 but don't worry)
    2. vith your FTP program create the folder called "blog"
    3. Move all your WP files into the new "blog" folder

    But my FTP program Terrapin crashed after I moved the three WordPress directories and before I could move the files in WordPress. When I started Terrapin again, all directories were in their original place, except it says 'directory not found' for the wp-admin directory. I can't copy the files again, because it says 'Server Problem', and I have to kill the job. I can't reopen install.php even though I can see that the file is there. So, at the moment, I'm stuck. Any ideas how to complete the file copying as that seems to be my only hope?
