I am in the process of moving my WordPress.com blog to WordPress.org, and I am finding the process very complicated…I have no idea what I am doing.
I have paid for my web host through Bluehost, and completed the first 4 steps of the 5-minute install.
This is where I am stuck:
Place the WordPress files in the desired location on your web server:
* If you want to integrate WordPress into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/), move or upload all contents of the unzipped WordPress directory (but excluding the directory itself) into the root directory of your web server.
* If you want to have your WordPress installation in its own subdirectory on your web site (e.g. http://example.com/blog/), rename the directory wordpress to the name you’d like the subdirectory to have and move or upload it to your web server. For example if you want the WordPress installation in a subdirectory called “blog”, you should rename the directory called “wordpress” to “blog” and upload it to the root directory of your web server.
I am not entirely sure what this means. I am currently in phpMyAdmin, in the “import” section, with my database chosen. But I don’t know what exactly constitutes the “directory” in my unzipped folder. There’s a ton of php files – do I import them all?
