Changed Blog Folder Name Already
Greetings. I migrated a 700-post blog from Blogger recently. It was a trial, but all is near perfect. Old blog was at example.com/blog, so I found tutorials explaining how to migrate and keep same directory name: 1) migrate blog to folder wordpress, 2) change URLs in WP admin, 3) access server via FTP and rename blog to blog-old, 4) then rename wordpress to blog.
Now I want to upgrade WP. I go to my host and the Install facility still thinks WP is installed in directory wordpress. I have read all of the codex articles regarding what I should have done. The question is, what do I do now? How can I tell my server the new folder name?
Everyone says ‘migrate to WP’ if you have a serious blog. So I did, and it took me 3 weeks. I did tons of research, but not knowing WP, I didn’t know this would happen and nobody mentioned it. I’m starting to panic because I can’t upgrade WP and my database backups are probably useless, too. Please help. Thanks!
