Support » Fixing WordPress » I don't want "/wp" as part of my web address

  • Hi. I just started editing a WP theme I bought. I see that as I customize the theme, my site’s web address is http://www.musexplore.net/wp. I would like it to simply be http://www.musexplore.net.
    I followed the directions at “Giving WP its own directory,
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory

    but the directions at step 6 aren’t clear to me:
    Change the following and save the file. Change the line that says:
    require(‘./wp-blog-header.php’);
    to the following, using your directory name for the WordPress core files:
    require(‘./wordpress/wp-blog-header.php’);

    I changed the line index.php to (‘./musexplore.net/wp-blog-header.php’)
    and now I’m getting the following message when I try to view my site (along with 2 other, similar messages):
    Warning: require(./musexplore.net/wp-blog-header.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/smberer/public_html/musexplore.net/index.php on line 17

    Is this because I couldn’t locate and copy the .htaccess file to the musexplore.net directory?
    What to do??
    Thanks — Steve
