I'm having problems moving wordpress to its own directory also. I want to keep wordress in its own directory where I installed it, but move the main page to the root directory.
I followed the instructions in the Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory documentation.
Everything looked OK, but I couldn't access any of my pages (posts were OK).
I found another post about editing the .htaccess in the original directory with the following line:
redirect 301 /ORIG-DIR/ http://www.MY-DOMAIN-NAME.com/
This seemed to have fixed everything. So I logged off.
However, 2 hours later, I have different problems!
- I can't login
- The theme and all the formatting has disappeared
What do I do to fix this? Please help!
