I had a quick question about the instructions here ( http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory#Using_a_pre-existing_subdirectory_install ). I have a website that is currently sitting in a /wordpress subdirectory, but I'd like to have the main page (at least) be at the plain .com address.
However, there is already a site being hosted at the .com address -- the one that the new /wordpress one is intended to replace. If I follow the instructions above and leave the original content in the root directory, will it screw everything up? Should I delete everything already in the root directory before following this process? I just want to make sure this works properly when I set it up, as I've already had issues with trying to do this once. I would also prefer to not delete the old website until I'm sure the new one is functioning.
Thanks for any help you can give me!
