Hello all still looking for some assistance on this and wondering if I'm on the right track. So after reading several things I find that I am still confused. I want to change my url address which currently shows me my site (www.randyniles.com/wordpress) to just http://www.randyniles.com. I'm just trying to find the most efficient way to do this. Since I'm new to all this I really concerned about screwing things up with the database/etc I'm just trying to make sure I'm taking the proper steps. I've read several things and it looks like the possible solution is 1. changing the Blog URL from http://www.randyniles.com/wordpress to just http://www.randyniles.com is my first move.... then moving the index.php file to my root would be the next step... and then from what I'm reading I need a .htaccess file as well which I currently don't have in my folder so I've been reading where I would need to create one... My first ? is - is this the way to go out doing what I like done? and if so how do I create the .htaccess file (creating a txt file and saving it as .htaccess?)
Sorry for sounding so clueless but I truly am at this point..lol
I really appreciate all the assistance you all have been providing and can provide... Thanks.
