When I created my website, I was told to create it in a subfolder, which I called Dummy. The reason (?) because I was transferring the Domain Name to a new hosting account and it would take 24/48 hours to transfer and I didn’t want to loose that time. Once everything was in place, the new hosting tech support helped me MOVE my files from the Dummy folder to the Primary root directory.
When a new WP upgrade comes out, I always upgrade through my Hosting Provider. It’s a “1-2-3” procedure and uncomplicated. Only, this time when I tried to upgrade, WordPress wanted to upgrade the Dummy folder of this specific website, which no longer exists. i cannot change the direction of the upgrade to go to the Primary root directory. I was told by tech support that once WordPress is moved, the only way it can be upgraded is manually. This is not an option I want to consider at this point in time.
Can someone tell me how I can fix this problem without having to rebuild the website?
