My site was built on WordPress platform and I have an issue of how my url is displayed. It displays as mydomain.com/wordpress. I think when I created the website it is that way by default. I am planning to move all files from the wordpress folder to the root. That way it will display mydomain.com url, rather than mydomain.com/wordpress.
Is there anything I need to be aware of before I do the move? Thx

Moving Wordpress up a level is straightforward albeit a bit involved.  The links above are a good start as is this article:

However, you can avoid the whole process using an Apache trick:

So if you use the Apache trick, you do not need to the other steps. Correct?
