How to move wordpress blog within a domain

wordpress

#1

Right now my Wordpress blog lives at my domain, www.mydomain/blog. But now I would like to have the blog show up at www.mydomain.com and lose the “blog” part. Wordpress lives inside of a directory entitled “blog” on the server. Is it possible to move the entire Wordpress site out of the “blog” directory and into the main directory?

I’m really afraid of blowing up my entire operation if I try this without some guidance. Thanks.

I did something similar…
It’s not that hard… and there are 2 parts to it…

  1. in wordpress it’s self - change where it sits

Settings -> General -> WordPress address (URL) -> remove /blog
and same with -> Site address (URL) -> remove /blog

then just copy everything from the blog directory to the main directory…
thats it…
