I'm about to move a WP installation from a sub-directory off the document root to the server's document root, using the instructions at:
Before I go ahead, though, I have just one question. The instructions say:
If you are using Permalinks, go to the Administration > Settings > Permalinks panel and update your Permalink structure to your .htaccess file, which should be in the same directory as the main index.php file.
Does this simply mean to go the the permalink settings page and re-save the settings? Because there's nothing on that page about the .htaccess file, although I imagine that saving will create a rule there.
Sorry if this is a rather simple question. Put it down to nerves.
