Support » Fixing WordPress » Re-root correctly the ecommerce

  • Hi everybody,

    I’m nearly done with my webcommerce and want to make it public. The problem is I did it under folder and I want to direct it to the homepage. I already tried to do it, it crashed my whole webshop to the point that I had to reinstall the WP and all the rest. Very very frustrating 🙁

    Please please help me and guide me how to do it properly and safely this time.

    Site: http://lopearls.com/here need to direct everything to the http://lopearls.com

    appreciated for the help!

  • I read 20 times but it said “HTTP_HOST” etc. I dont have it!
    I have:
    RewriteBase /here/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /here/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    what should I change?
    thank you!

    What said said “HTTP_HOST” etc? Did you ensure that you followed ALL of the steps?

    it was:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /here/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /here/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    new .htaccess file that I edited and re-uploaded

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /here/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /here/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?lopearls.com$
    RewriteRule ^(/)?$ here [L]

    # END WordPress

    it doesnt point to general directory, still to subdirectory 🙁

    You shouldn’t edit the .htaccess file. Just place a copy of it in your root domain folder.

    Do I get you right: I need to keep original .htaccess file and I need to create and upload second .htaccess file to the subfolder of the domain?

    and the second .htaccess file should just contain this?

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?lopearls.com$
    RewriteRule ^(/)?$ here [L]

    will it not ask me to rename my original .htaccess file? should it have different name like .htaccess1?

    sorry, if I ask idiot questions but I really dont want to ruin lot of work put in this site.

    thank you!

    No. You need to COPY the original .htaccess file to your domain root folder.

    Filezilla doesnt let me to COPY the original file, I can only MOVE it to the domain root folder 🙁

    Downoad a copy of the file and upload it to your root domain folder.

    I was not able to download the file via Filezilla, I installed Cyberduck, download it but I can’t find it in my Downloads! 🙁

    I’m really really sorry but as I can’t find downloaded file how can I upload to the folder next to my folder /here/.

    Thank you for help, I’m desperate 🙁

    Now my whole site is down :(((
    I have this message:

    Error establishing a database connection

    I cant access my admin section neither! :(((

    PLEASE, HELP!!!

    I have my site back but still cant re-root it 🙁

    And again error message 🙁 and site is down 🙁
