Issue changing the Site Address (URL)
« on: March 26, 2016, 11:54:44 AM »
I am trying to change the Site Address (URL) of my website from http://paigeturco.net/wp to http://paigeturco.net and according to this https://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory all I have to do is copy the index.php and .htaccess files from the WP directory into the root one (and modify the index.php afterwards), but my problem is that I already have an index.html file in there, so I'm not entirely sure what to do with it. I tried moving it to a different folder but that just gave me an Error. I also already have a .htaccess file in the root directory, so if I were to copy the WP one, I'd end up overwriting them. Any suggestions?

I managed to sort it out. Only concern I'm still having is the .htaccess files that I've left as they were for now, because this is what I have in the WP folder:



And this is in the root directory:

Glad you figured the first part out!

Regarding the .htaccess file, your site appears to be working fine, so no need to change anything there. Just leave as is.

Any other questions do let me know.
