[resolved] Moving WordPress (4 posts)

    HELP! Not sure what I did but I tried to moved WordPress to the root directory (to effectively make the site go live). I changed the URLS under settings. Then moved the files from the 'wordpress1' folder where they were stored to the root directory. I go to view the site and get several error messages that refer to the old folder, as in
    "Warning: include(/data/18/2/140/135/2792624/user/3072610/htdocs/asthmacare/wordpress1/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/wp-cache-base.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /data/18/2/140/135/2792624/user/3072610/htdocs/asthmacare/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/wp-cache.php on line 53"

    Of course the site does not work. And I can't get into WordPress to fix it. Why is WordPress still pointing to the old location?

    The site is http://asthmacare.us.com

    I am going to try to move files back to the old folder first to see if I at least can get back to where I was. Any ideas how to move forward though?

    Well, I am not giving WordPress its own directory but moving it to the root directory.
    It turned out that the config.php file still referred to the old folder, so once I edited that it worked fine.

    Glad you got it sorted out :)
