Ok, i’ve done the 5 steps to change my blog from http://example.com/wordpress/ to http://example.com/. However when i go to the admin i get an error page?? Do have to go through all the admin pages and change paths?? I’m very much a noob so feel free to “dumb it down” for me 😉
The only thing i’m not sure about is step “4. Open up wp-config-sample.php and fill in your database details. Save and rename the file to wp-config.php.” I didn’t know what else to change there. My hosting provider did the set up so i didn’t know what else to change on that??? It was working before I did the directory change so i know he did everything right.
I think i just realized what i did wrong. Man do i feel stupid. I set both the blog AND the WP address to the root. Stoopid stoopid stoopid. Is there a way to fix this? obviously i can’t get into the admin interface to set it back…
Aha! After wrestling with my inherent dim-wittedness i came up with a solution. I copied all contents of the main WP directory to the root directory (temporarily). This allowed me to log in and fix my blunder. I then deleted everything i had copied over except for the index file. Now everything seems to be working swimingly!
