Moved site files, now have site/blog and 404 errors (3 posts)

    My WP and blog URL were: http://tapioca.tv/blog

    Stupidly, not a PHP expert, after upgrading to 2.3.1 I decided to move everything back to the root (tapioca.tv), thinking this would switch my pages to tapioca.tv/page rather than tapioca.tv/blog/page. I also intended to make a static, non-WP homepage. Needless to say, I screwed things up, and ended up going back and re-installing my backup files from the day before, changing the site to how it was (tapioca.tv/blog as both the WP URL & blog URL). When I updated permalinks, the .htaccess file never updated (even though dashboard said it had), so I couldn't get any pages to load. It worked again when I manually changed it to:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    But now it won't load tapioca.tv/blog (even though that's the WP and blog directory). Just tapioca.tv loads, and /blog/pages. I'm also getting '404 Not Found' errors.

    PLEASE HELP. This stinks.

    update: in options>general, i tried pointing the blog address to just tapioca.tv, thinking maybe that would help...suddenly i lost access to all pages, and still have 404 not found errors. i changed it back so both URLs are tapioca.tv/blog, but pages still wouldn't load. i edited .htaccess in BOTH my root and my WP /blog directory to make sure they were plain text and not rich text, but that didn't work. no pages load, still have 404 issues. ???

    last update: i deleted htaccess in the root (tapioca.tv) and realized my /blog/index.php was empty -- voila! fixing index.php made tapioca.tv/blog reappear. permalinks are ok. HOWEVER, i still have 404 issues (ex: tapioca.tv/web) = "NOT FOUND". 404.php in my themes directory looks fine, though.
    what needs to be fixed?
