Moving Wordpress into the Root folder
Posted on 2011-03-14
I read online that its very important to install Wordpress in the root directory of your web site. What steps must I take to move my current Wordpress folder up to the root directory and have everything working properly? Currently the index page of my wordpress site is located two folders deep from the root directory.
Lastly, the main page of my site is named index.php in my root directory. The main page of my wordpress blog is named "index.php". If i moved my wordpress blog to the root directory my blog index.php would overwrite the main index.php file which i do not want. Do I have to rename my wordress blog named index.php before I move everything to the root directory?
