I built a new wordpress website in a folder on my client's website. Her old website was a Joomla website. The hosting is linux.
In the past, all I had to do was to take the files from the wordpress directory and put them in the www directory, after removing the old website files to a folder.
This has always worked in the past. But when I tried it this time the website lost all of its formatting ie, all the content was listed on the left side of the page. I managed to fix this by leaving a copy of the website in the wordpress folder (as well as in the www folder).
When I go try the website - http://www.walbrookconsulting.ie the website appears. When I try login it with http://www.walbrookconsulting.ie/wp-admin it searches for http://www.walbrookconsulting.ie/wordpress/wp-admin
Aside from helping me to fix it, why did it work in the past, but not work now?
Thank you in advance O, Wise Ones!
