Support » Fixing WordPress » Locate WP site in Root Directory URL

  • Resolved David_1


    Hello Friends,

    I wonder if someone could lend a hand.
    I have my copy of WP in a folder called “wordpress” just below the “root” folder.

    To have my WP website launch in its home URL, I am using the method found on:

    I must be missing something because when I try to view the website all I see is:

    Warning: require(/home/p25lh0s9/public_html/ [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/p25lh0s9/public_html/ on line 21

    Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/p25lh0s9/public_html/’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/p25lh0s9/public_html/ on line 21

    URL of WP website:

    If someone happens to have any idea’s what is needed I would be very grateful hearing from you.
    Many thanks in advance.

  • You need to have your host (or use their provided client interface) point the site to the install folder and make it the root application folder (with proper configuration). If you have a site in the real root of your webhost move that also to a sub folder and make each root…discuss with your web host (and DNS provider). Use DNS to point everyone elsewhere from real web host root.

    Hello SwansonPhotos,

    Thank you very kindly for the tips. They are very much appreciated!
    It seems I can view the site now, although the Slider is not working, but I cannot log in to the Dashboard.

    If anyone has an idea how I could remedy this, I would be extremely happy to hear from you.
    Many thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.
