Getting Word Press into the Top Directory





Possum
Hi

When I upload Wordpress into the top Directory and extract it. It extracts into it a wordpress folder.

So my site http://educationinvestmentbank.com ends up being
http://educationinvestmentbank.com/wordpress/

I know I can (and will) extract wordpress on my local computer and up load all the files to the top directory.

But is there a way I can extract the wordpress.zip into the top directroy of my site without it creating the wordpress folder..

Thx..

I think you need a different zip file for that. Either create one yourself on your local computer from all the files inside the WordPress folder (make sure to get all the files) or maybe download it again from WordPress, this time another version. You might also be able to take a .tar.gz file as I think DirectAdmin is able to unzip that too.

I took your advice


I made my own zip file and uploaded it. My site now works out of the root directory. This may not be the proper way to do it

ie

But it works.. All I really want to do is learn Wordpress so Im happy for now..



Thx....

upload zip file one step up to public_html directory and unzip it. Now you will have wordpress folder.
Now rename public_html to some like public_html_old and rename wordpress folder as public_html now you access your blog from toplevel domain. hope this is helpful to you
