Support » Installing WordPress » vs.

  • I have a host and a domain. Currently the site is redirected to a blogger blog. I want to not redirect anymore and I want my domain url to show my wordpress blog. How can my files become my files? I see at the wp-admin area that I can point the blogger address to my domain address, but how does my domain know to display the blog and not my current index.html page?

    First, you will want to use the importer in WordPress to import your Blogger blog. Next, login to Blogger and tell it to stop publishing to your domain (and take out the FTP host/username/password). Next, you should be able to delete all files blogger put on your server (via FTP) (you may want to backup them up first). That should be it! As long as WordPress’s index.php is still in the directory you want to post to (and the blog is setup for that directory), you should be set!

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    So, in other words, I replace the index.html file of my domain with the index.php file of my wordpress folder ?

    Should I delete all of my former files from my server?

    Regarding your reply, I think the domain is publishing (redirecting) to the blogger blog and not the other way around. I put in redirect code on my domain server to point to my blogger blog.

    I think I understand. If you just have one index.html file on your server that causes a redirect to occur (to *****, then you should take that off the server and put the index.php file from WordPress in its place. I would also recommend importing your blogger blog so that you just had to worry about one blog (that’s just me, though).

    I replaced the file and now get this upon entering the url:

    Warning: main(./wp-blog-header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /nfs/cust/1/60/28/282061/web/index.php on line 4

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘./wp-blog-header.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/php/include’) in /nfs/cust/1/60/28/282061/web/index.php on line 4

    Wow! Now it’s redirecting to the blog again even though I removed the index.html file.
