Changing index.php to something else... (4 posts)

    WP is clearly brilliant, but I have a little problem.

    I want my blog to be on the page journal.php and not index.php in my primary directory. The WP files are in /journal/ and I have followed the instructions to move index.php to a different folder.

    But I'm not sure how to stop WP from pointing to journal.php all the time. I've changed the file name to journal.php and it works okay, but all internal links seem to link to index.php?whatever .

    I did have a good look for the answer to this question but wasn't able to find one. I'd really appreciate the help...

    in phpMyAdmin, you can change the name of the default blog page from index.php to whatever you want, I believe it's in the wp-options table, near the top, though I may be wrong...

    That's it exactly!

    It works fine, and it was a simple change to the value of blogfilename in wp_options (the second record in that table).

    Thanks very much.

    Another thanks from me. Just installing and setting up WP today. Having some difficulties just from my own ignorance, but this was one of my questions and you gave the perfect solution! (although it took me a little while to figure out what phpMyAdmin is and how to change it).
