We are trying to figure out how to get the blog running on its own page on our website, http://www.solaswebdesign.net. The problem we are encountering is that we cannot call the blog index file 'index.php' because that conflicts with our own homepage 'index.shtml'. We cannot change the filename of our homepage because of all of the inbound links we have coming into it. So, we've tried changing the blog filename to 'blogindex.php' and have it running on the root directory: http://www.solaswebdesign.net/blogindex.php. In this situation, we cannot make any of the options in the blog (commenting on blogs, anything on the left nav) work. We've also tried leaving it as 'index.php' and putting it into a seperate folder off of the root called 'wordpress', and followed the instructions found here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory. However, these instructions seem to indicate that the index.php file needs to be in the root directory. Can anyone help us out with this?
