  • How do I complete steps 6 and 7 of this?

    6. Move your WordPress core files to the new location (WordPress address).

    7. Copy (NOT MOVE!) the index.php and .htaccess files from the WordPress directory into the root directory of your site (Blog address). The .htaccess file is invisible, so you may have to set your FTP client to show hidden files. If you are not using pretty permalinks, then you may not have a .htaccess file.

    you don’t need to move anything.
    Just copy the index.php from the folder and move it up one after you’ve replaced the content in the file.

    For example, your site is located in domain.com/wp/

    In your admin, under settings you changed the site url to domain.com right?

    Next in the wp folder, you grab the index.php and .htaccess (via ftp). Just stick them on your desktop.

    Open the index.php and change the require(‘./wp-blog-header.php’); to require(‘./wp?wp-blog-header.php’);

    Save it and then upload it and the .htacess in the root folder of domain.com.

    Thanks so much, Christine.

    You need to access your site via FTP and move your files. If you don’t know how to do this, you can get help from your host. Tools like Filezilla are what’s needed for doing this.
