This question has been asked a lot by others. Most get no replies or a couple standard replies which don't seem to work for many people.
I want my blog to appear at mydomain.com rather than mydomain.com/wordpress.
I tried what is suggested at http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL. That worked but I assume I still have to actually move my blog files on the server.
Therefore, I tried what is suggested at http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress but couldn't login to my blog because of the changes made above.
Therefore, I changed the URL back to the original status and returned to the Moving_WordPress step. It stated:
2 Login to your blog.
3 Go to the Administration > Settings > General panel.
4 In the box for WordPress address (URI): change the address to the new location of your main WordPress core files.
5 In the box for Blog address (URI): change the address to the new location, which should match the WordPress address (URI).
However, in the General panel where it says "WordPress address (URL)" and "Blog address (URL)" the boxes referenced in step 4 and 5 above, are grayed out with a message next to them that says, "(This field cannot be edited)"
My web host is Aplus.net. Customer service told me it's not possible on their server. But I found a WordPress blog on Aplus.net that WAS able to do this, only I can't email the guy because there is no email link on his page. Other people have done this BUT HOW???
PLEASE HELP ME...HELLLLLLLLLP!
