I have installed the WP 2.6 at the directory (instead of the root) using fantastico install and under the settings panel of WP, i changed the wordpress adress url to reflect the main url. i also changed the index.php as per codex instruction. as i cannot directly copy it, i uploaded the edited index.php via filezilla to the public htlml folder. Basically how do I go about this process - COPY the index.php and .htaccess files from the WordPress directory into the root directory of the site? In my case, I did not see any .htaccess files from the subdirectory, the .ht access file is already in the public_html. I am getting error messages when i type the wordpress address url. When i type the blog url, it is showing the page of the hosting provider. I do not know how to figure it out as this is my first time to install WP.
Your help will be much appreciated.
