First time posting here and please accept my apologies if this is the wrong forum or if this has been asked before. I’ve had a plain HTML site hosted on DH for about 10 years and I JUST dipped into WordPress. I used to maintain the HTML site simply by updating the HTML files and dropping them into my FTP folder.
I decided to install WP under site.com/home and now that I really like the outcome so much, I want to make it just as the old site was, so if I just type site.com it goes directly to the homepage instead of having to type /home.
My questions are:
- How can I achieve this?
- Can I just backup all of the old HTML files from my FTP folder (just in case) and just copy all of the WP files and folders from the “home” folder into the “root” folder?
- I’ve seen mentions around of having a “redirect”, could that apply in this situation? To redirect anyone going to site dot com to site dot com/home instead?
Thanks in advance and again, apologies if these are dumb or repeated questions.
