Support » Fixing WordPress » Site defaulting to subfolder

  • Hello, I’m in the process of moving my Joomla site to WordPress. I created the WordPress site in wp subfolder and now that it is ready to primetime, I moved the existing Joomla site to a subfolder and copied /wp content to the main folder but when i try to reach the site it is defaulting to the sufolder. Whenever I type http://australia-car-exporter.com/ it defaults to http://australia-car-exporter.com/wp subfolder. I’m able to log into backend and in Settings the site is the root site without the subfolder.

    I have done this process of moving sites from subfolder to the root three times and it has always gone without a hitch so not sure what I’m doing wrong.

  • Looks like you’d need to move the WordPress installation. Moving the wp-content outside of the install should break the site.

    Take a look at this: https://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks Dan, have looked at that page but have checked and nothing there that is relevant to my situation. Settings are correct, have also updated internal URL using Velvet Blue but site still keeps directing. I’ve also created a new .htaccess file from instructions on wordpress.org site but to no avail. Site is down now so need urgent help on this matter.
