    Okay so I reinstalled wordpress but now I'm trying to get my site by itself like instead of everything showing via.

    http://www.triplelove.org/wordpress/

    i'm trying to get it to show on my own domain name like this

    http://www.triplelove.org/

    but I keep getting this error page:

    Error 403 - Forbidden

    You tried to access a document for which you don't have privileges.

    I tried following this tutorial http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory but it keeps telling me to copy a .htaccess file but I don't see any in my wordpress directory.
