    Could someone advise me please? I cannot see my site online without typing the WP extension. I uploaded wordpress to its own subdirectory 'wp' so my site is only visible at www.????.com/wp Someone suggested on a forum I move my files into the public root without saying how to do it. I installed WP from cpanel originally.

    Please read the documentation :

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    Read the content under the sub header When Your Domain Name or URLs Change.

    Edit : Please remove the http:// from your example url, it is actually pointing to another site.

    Thanks for the help - I will read it now. I didn't put the http:// in myself it is automatically added - so I couldn't remove it as it isn't there in my post!

    So in the same way the link is gone now ; )

    Please read it and if you find any difficulty, please let us know.

    Another practical thing is - you can actually find few good tutorial videos if you perform a search on YouTube. Some of the videos are quite helpful with the codex document for the users. With words its get difficult to describe...
