[resolved] WordPress in subdirectory - .htaccess error (4 posts)

    In the process of changing my site from using WordPress as just a blog to setting it to show up as the homepage of my site I have somehow messed up the installation.

    WordPress is installed in a subdirectory. I have deleted the original index.html and tried following the directions here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory the bottom directions "Using a pre-existing subdirectory install."

    As I understand it the .htaccess and index.php should be in both the public_html directory and my subdirectory where WordPress is installed. I have done this but the site is still not working right. The background and header is not displaying on the homepage and apparently other pages on the site cannot be accessed.

    The site is: http://mitchellfamilyfarm.us/

    TIA for any advice.
    :-)

    no - they should only exist in the root - or public_html folder

    ...made a simple change and now it appears to be working.
    under General Settings I had the site address incorrect.
