I have a working installing of WP in directory /xx/.
I want to move the whole thing to my root directory.
I have followed the instructions, but things did no quite work out so I decided to try a different approach.
1. Backup existing wp database
2. create a new database
3. create a new wp installation in the root directly
here is the trouble.
While I get a home page in the root directly, every link takes me to /xx/xyz.php. Why? I am doing a clean install.
When I try to go to mysite/wp-admin/ I get a Firefox error message saying that the server is redirecting the call in a way that can never be satisfied.
