  • So i found this tutorial, but I can’t find the .htaccess file in the WordPress folder. What gives? Where is it? Please help!

    Hello Alexander –

    A couple of solutions:

    1. Move your WordPress installation from the directory it is now in (/wordpress) to the top level directory for your site.

    2. Program in a way to forward the domain to your WordPress index page. There are a couple of ways to do this.

    You can contact me at if you need to.

    If you go with Scott’s option 1, have a look at Moving_WordPress first.

    How do I program it to forward the domain to my wordpress index page? I’ve read the directions and they don’t seem to help. I can’t find the .htaccess file.


    Assuming the WordPress files are in a folder called wordpress in your domain root folder, to make WordPress available at just change in Options-General, the Blog address (URL) to and put this index.php file in your web-root folder (it is the same folder that contains the blog folder)

    /* Short and sweet */
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);

    Then update your permalinks in Options-Permalinks.

    This particular setup is described at:

    Email received from alexanderrmorrow stating he solved his problem. Marking as resolved.
