    Hi all, my site is found at myurl.com/wordpress - everythings fine therem

    But I obviously don't want to direct people to this, I want to use my url - with .com on the end

    Can anyone tell me how I can go about doing this because at the minute at myurl.com - all I get is my hosting login page

    you have to install your blog at yourdomain.com and not xxx.com/blog
    install to your root... ( / )

    Thanks for the reply

    How do I do this?

    Is this in WordPress General Settings?

    WordPress address (URL) ?
    Site address (URL) ?

    Thankyou

    you must install via your hosting account - use fantastico or via an FTP client software. however... by the way you ask i would go through the first suggestion. your hosting service can help you with it.
