  • Um… The site works fine. You’ve installed in in the /wordpress/ folder, and not in the root folder, so when you go to you’ll see that it works correctly.

    If you would like to move WordPress from the /wordpress folder to the root of the domain, you can refer to this document:

    Hi Michael! Which one I need to install under root folder? wp config.php or wordpress? thank u so much agian.

    Hi Lay,

    You have to move all WordPress as explained in this document;

    Since it is a new WordPress most probably it is easier to simply delete all the files form the /wordpress sub directory and re-install it in the root.

    I tried both already but still not yet working. I knew that I am a bit difficult to understand whenever people explain to me. but pls help me again. thank u so much.

    No problem. So basically at this stage, since it is still a new WordPress installation I would recommend you to simply delete what you have and re-install it from scratch. In this case you should:

    Delete the current installation by:

    1. Using the file manager from your hosting provider’s cpanel, delete the WordPress directory. Alternatively use FTP to login to your website and delete the files using ftp.

    2. From your hosting provider cpanel, delete the database and username you created.

    Install a new WordPress by:

    1. Download the latest version of WordPress from:

    2. Extract it and upload all the files in the root of the website using FTP.

    3. Create a new database and username from your hosting cpanel.

    4. Access the website URL to proceed with the install.

    That should be it.

    Johnb81!!!! Thank u so much for understand on me. Now I knew that I need to install FTP program. but i dont know how to use it. If u dont mind can u pls explain it to me. thank u.

    You can read more about it here:

    So I would recommend you to download a free ftp client, such as filezilla;

    In the host section enter the URL of your website, in this case

    the username and password you should have got them in the hosting provider introductory email. Alternatively most probably you can retrieve them from the Hosting provider cpanel.

    Once you connect via ftp, then you can delete remote files and upload new files to your website.

    Hope this helps and let me know if you need further assistance.

    Thank u so much John. I really appriciate ur help. Let me try it first. Sure, I will let you know and i will share to other people also. I am really lucky to met u.

    Hi John!
    I did it already. Actually all the long way I did the correct but only thing is I never use FTP program and I upload WP folder directly from my File manager (from webhost). It’s not working after I use FTP and I upload WP Folder, then it’s work. Thank u so much for ur help.

    Welcome. As long as it is working, it’s fine 🙂
