    Hi there

    I wanted to ask you about and what happens to my URL
    http://www.andychristodrums.co.uk
    after the WordPress installation. Does the URL change to something like http://www.andychristodrums.co.uk/wp ? if so how do I make sure that I keep the same URL do I need a re-direct? if so how do I do that

    Many thanks
    Andy

    I'm not sure what the question is. Your site looks fine and there is no change in the URL?

    ( I would under settings -> permalinks change the setting to have nicer page URL's though)

    Hi basically, I asked my hosting company to transfer the website to another domain (and different account with my hosting company). It works fine as it is, but I need to install wordpress to edit it. In my previous domain when I installed wordpress the url of my site changed slightly in that a /wp was appended to the url of my site (you can see it here it has a /wp at the end http://andys.antonioborrillo.co.uk/wp/) and I don't want the same thing to happen to the new url http://www.andychristodrums.co.uk, does it make sense

    Aha. I guess this is because some hosters have these one-click package install options since this is not normal WordPress stuff. The best would be to download your whole site ( with FTP ) to your computer and just upload everything back to your new hosting. After that you only have to fix the wp-config.php settings ( new database name/ password etc ) .
