    Being not expert I can only say that that worked for me.

    However… you need to update the .htaccess file after doing that and after selecting what type of permalinks you want ( General/Settings/Permalinks ). [ Codex — Changing Url )

    Before the # BEGIN WordPress part, at the very top of the .htaccess file, you could paste something like this:

    Options +FollowSymLinks +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
    RedirectMatch 301 ^/http://www.beaconacademy.org/dev-wpbeacon/wordpress/([^/]+)/$ http://www.beaconacademy.org/http://www.beaconacademy.org/dev-wpbeacon/wordpress/$1

    That example, using Mr. Yoast’s tool here, is for %postname% permalinks, to use other sorts of permalinks, go to that link.
