Need help with WordPress upgrade following bad first install

  • Hi,

    I’d like to do an upgrade of WordPress, but I’m worried about how to do it, since I think I did the original install incorrectly.

    Here’s my situation: I’ve currently got WordPress 2.6.3 installed at my site, DSCOMIC.COM. However, last December, when I installed this, instead of appearing on the root site, dscomic.com, the blog appears at http://www.dscomic.com/wordpress-2.6.3/wordpress/
    So I get around this by doing a 301 redirect from dscomic.com to http://www.dscomic.com/wordpress-2.6.3/wordpress/. It’s a mess.

    Anyhow, what I’d like to do is:
    1) upgrade to the newest WordPress,
    2) AND somehow fix this so that the blog appears at the root directory (dscomic.com ) this time,
    3) AND still be able to link to those old posts in the http://www.dscomic.com/wordpress-2.6.3/wordpress/ directory.

    Whats the best approach to doing the three things above?

    Thanks
