    Make a folder called "theblog" or whatever, then follow these instructions exactly.

    OK, here is the simplest way to do it. Follow it step by step:

    1. login > admin > Options > General
    2. Change the two URI values from theBlog to theblog
    3. Click the Update Options button (bottom right) and do NOT worry about any error message you might get
    4. Don't try to open/see your blog in a browser!!!
    5. via FTP rename your "theBlog" folder to "theblog"
    Done.
