I'm so new to WordPress that I haven't even installed it on my ISP's server yet, but I'd like to ask a question so I can get everything right from the beginning. I've searched existing topics and can't find anyone in exactly my situation, so I apologise if my question has already been answered.
At present I administer a website (www.nlha.org.uk) which was built using html and CSS. It's in a subdirectory (nlha.org.uk/html) of the root directory on 1and1's server, and I've pointed the domain name to /html as its root directory.
I'd like to instal WordPress in another subdirectory (/wordpress) and develop a new site there, pointing the domain name to the wordpress subdirectory when the site is finished. I'm just worried that any links which are generated in the wordpress subdirectory may not work properly when I change the root directory for the domain name from /html to /wordpress. Am I worrying unnecessarily? Is there a fairly straightforward way of handling this?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. If there is a previous topic which answers my questions, I would be grateful for a nudge in its direction.
