Codex instructions don’t work out: Giving WordPress Its Own Directory

  • I’m following this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress
    to set my index on root, and WP core files on a subdirectory. I made the subdirectory, made the necessary changes on WordPress Options, but after I click on Update Options, its looking for the wp-login.php file on the still empty subdirectory.

    What am I doing wrong here? Thanks.

    Giving WordPress Its Own Directory
    Done steps 8 onwards ?

    Did you move the files??

    podz: No. Am I supposed to get an error? Right now, I’m moving the core files, because I’m under the suspicion that the Update Options task did work, because I can’t click on anything right now, and have it work.

    oriecat: I’m currently moving files. Let’s see what happens.

    Thanks guys for the quick replies. Got it to work. Was a little panicky since the codex didnt document that I will be eventually getting that error.

    Can you recommend what’d be clearer? Perhaps after (5), “At this point WordPress may not be working properly. That’s expected; continue to the next step..”

    I always put in my replies here in the forum a note saying “Do not try to open your blog until you finish all the required operations”… or something similar.
