    Hello there

    could you please tell me where the .htaccess file is? According to Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory I should move the index.php file and the .htaccess file to the root directory if I would like to have the following:

    actual wordpress storage on my server:
    rootFiles/wordpress

    whilst I would like to have simply the following displayed: example.homedns.org
    instead of example.homedns.org/wordpress
    ?

    Therefore, I now changed the wordpress address url in the general settings:
    http://example.dyndns.org/wordpress

    and
    blog address:
    http://example.dyndns.org

    so, I understand that I should put the index.php into the root together with the .htaccess. Does wordpress have its own .htaccess because the original webserver's apache .htaccess file is stored somewhere else and I don't think I should move that to somewhere else.

    Cheers,
    George

    I have the same problem. For the theme I used, the .htaccess file is a hidden file. Is there a way to find it so I can move it?
    Thanks so much.
