    This is more than likely a dumb question, but I tend to ask those on occasion so here goes.
    When using the 5-minute install http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress#Famous_5-Minute_Install and it says to upload the files from the directory(but not the directory itself)what exactly does that mean?
    I have the folder called:
    wordpress2.6.3, and if I open it I have a folder called:
    wordpress, and if I open it I have:
    wp-admin
    wp-content
    wp-includes

    I’ve done this a few times and I don’t want to guess this time I want to get it right!
    Thanks alot,
    Jerry

  • OK, here goes:
    If you upload the directory named “wordpress” (second in your hierarchy above) – you will end up with an address/URL like
    example.com/wordpress

    If you upload the 3 directories under (in) it AND all the 20-something files on the same level, then you will have your WP blog at
    example.com

    Does this help?

    Yes moshu that was the what I needed to know.
    Thank you very much,
    Jerry
