    I'd installed WP in ...www/wordpress2.9.2/wordpress. Later I moved all the files from WordPress 2 WordPress2.9.2 & then deleted WordPress folder.
    After doing this I was not able 2 access my WP Login page uisng my URL. I got this error:
    Warning: require(./wordpress2.9.2/wordpress/wp-blog-header.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream:...

    Therefore, I decide to go back to the original structure - with all the
    files in WordPress folder. Even then I am getting the above error message.

    Help! Help!

    Put wordpress files where you want them to be, and then change blog url:

    Thanks renato_s, but why should I change the blog URL? Coz right now everything is in the original state. Can you please clarify?

    you need to change the blog url to point to the location of the files! If you move the files, you need to tell WP where they are

    Maybe these sets of instructions can help:

    At last somebody replied! Thanks RVoodoo!

    But the value of siteurl in WP_options points to the right directory. As I'd stated, right now everything is in the original state.

    Btw, I cannot access the Login page because of the error.

    could we get a link to the site? It may be useful, as well as the url in WP/Blog url from general settings (WP_options)

    My URL is - http://www.rmpindianmlm.biz/.
    And the siteurl value in wp_options is "http://www.rmpindianmlm.biz/Wordpress292/wordpress".

    Ok guys, my problem is now solved! I've done it myself!

    Guess what...the problem is in the casing of the folder-name: I changed the "W" in WordPress292 to "w".

    This is unbelievable 4 me! In fact, I feel stupid 4 having overlooked this simple fact that file/folder names are case-sensitive in the Net.
    I mean I just took things 4 granted.

    Thanks everybody 4 your attempts to help me.
