[resolved] Changing Root Directory (3 posts)

    Hello,

    I have a word press blog up and running in a subdirectory of my main site and I'm very happy with it. So happy in fact, that I'd like to scrap the site I've had up and running for a while and move everything over to WordPress pages with the main blog page as my home page.

    Currently the WordPress lurks in http://www.mysite.com/wordpress

    What do I need to change so that when anyone types in http://www.mysite.com they come straight to the front page of the blog? Are their any automated routines/plugins which will help me get there?

    Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, but I couldn't find it.

    Many thanks

    Eddie

    Login.
    Options
    See the two urls ?
    Change them to http://www.mysite.com
    Logout
    Move all the files
    Login

    All there is to it :)

    (Note: do not have a trailing slash as in .com/
    or use index.php as in .com/index.php Both those will break things)
