    I have wordpress set up in a sub-directory on my site. I was wanting to transfer it to my root directory. Is there a way I can do this without losing all my settings and information?

    Just move all the files to the root and then change the old url to the new one in the database following Podz's guide:

    The easier way is:
    1. Change the 2 URIs in Options.
    2. (do not open your blog in a browser!!!)
    3. Make the move > files to root
    4. NOW you can check it in a browser.
