I apologize beforehand for my lack of knowledge on the subject, but I'm starting to lose my mind and I know it's probably a simple fix for what I'm trying to do.
I'm hosting wordpress through godaddy and I, uh, "inadvertently" installed wordpress in both the top folder (html?) and a separate /wordpress directory. Not knowing any better, I was simply logging in by going to "www.mywebsite.com/wordpress/wp-login.php" and editing the site to be effected at simply "www.mywebsite.com".
Well, I noticed that when I tried applying certain widgets, (notably 'most popular post' widgets) they weren't showing up what-so-ever on http://www.mywebsite.com. That's when it sort of clicked and I added the /wordpress at the end and saw that the effects were taking place there.
I know this probably sounds like the insane ramblings of a madman, but I'm trying! How would I go about editing the /wordpress/wp-login.php and have the effect come up at the base directory? Someone help me set myself straight.
