    I have a hosting package with network solutions and I installed wordpress on it. Now when I type "MySiteName.com" or "www.MySiteName.com" it redirects to "MySiteName.com/wordpress1" since the wordpress stuff is located in a folder called "wordpress1." I have done some troubleshooting to no avail. I simply wish to have my wordpress site attached to my original domain name "www.MySiteName.com." Has anybody else had this issue? Thanks in advance for the help.

    Install it on the root folder and not inside wordpress1 if you dont want it in that folder.

    That shouldn't be necessary. See Giving WordPress Its Own Directory.

    How do I install it in the root folder? Network solutions requires that I choose a folder when installing wordpress which is usually labeled "wordpress1" by default. My root folder is called "htdocs" but when I typed that in, the url changed to "MySiteName.com/htdocs."

    I just did this today with a hosting company that wouldnt allow it to install on the root folder with a 1 click install function.

    The way I got around it is installed manually. So delete it all and upload the files to the root directory then change wp-config to the database.

    Or you can do what esmi said.
