    How would I go and make my wordpress file into my webpage? I plan to make a few websites with wordpress I know there is a way to write it in just would like to know how.
    Also anyone know where I can get a .htaccess file? I thought I made a fool proof one but WP is not reading it.

    upload the file to your root folder instead of the blog folder (www.domain.com <--- root, http://www.domain.com/blog <--- blog folder).

    usually it is public_html or www folders.

    actually wp can be inside a folder.. just that you have to copy the index.php from that folder into root folder and change admin options accordingly.

    on wp-admin options tab you have wordpress url and blog url. to have wordpress in a folder make your wordpress url http://domain.com/folder/ and your blog url would be http://domain.com/

    Might be a good idea to change the information before you move the files. And when you do move them move everything but the index.php. Then you have to edit the index.php so that it points at the right directory.
