Trouble redirecting to a subdirectory (3 posts)

    I have a subdirectory called "new" (not actually called that) containing a child theme. I have followed the instructions at http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory.

    As a result, I get the error `Warning: require(.new/wp-blog-header.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /hermes/bosweb25a/b506/ipg.rodwalters/natora/index.php on line 17

    Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '.new/wp-blog-header.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php-5.2.17/lib/php') in /hermes/bosweb25a/b506/ipg.rodwalters/natora/index.php on line 17`

    If I switch to the parent theme, I get a page with the "Oops, this is embarrassing" message.

    Thanks for your help.

    Creating a Child Theme and giving WordPress it's own Directory are not the same things...If you want your wordpess install at root/new/ then follow those instructions, but then also follow how to use a Child Theme (the child theme folder should be in the same folder of your site as the parent theme)...

    Thanks Seacoast,

    I have folders called twentytwelve and twentytwelve-child in wp-content/themes of the "new" subdirectory, so I assume that this is not the issue.
