  • Hi, I just installed WordPress yesterday. I am very new to all of this but am learning as I go. I am not sure which file I need to rename to make this a subdirectory. I am sure this is a basic question but Hey! I’m learing! 🙂

  • You don’t rename “files”… you move your WP install from the root to the directory of your choice.
    See Moving_WordPress.

    If you are wanting to create a new folder you do not rename anything, you simply use something along the lines of ‘Create new folder’ or ‘Create directory’ or mkdir in Shell.

    If you have a directory you wish to make a sub-directory create a directory, and then move it (in lots of FTP software you just drag it).

    I hope I’ve helped!

    And if you are wishing to move WordPress use the above link 😀

    or mkdir in Shell… and I hope I’ve helped! – don’t really go together.

    For someone who doesn’t know how to do a simple task like moving WP into a directory, all this is “geek-talk”. Sorry. For us Shell is a gas station on the corner…

    All the help is welcomed in this forum, just leave the geek mentality at the door 🙂 You are supporting average, non-technical users!

    LOL. Sorry, I’m new here – just trying to help.
