I did do a search on the forum but it looks like the last posts about this were from 2008, and I know lots of stuff around one-click installs has changed since then so I wanted some fresh takes on this problem.
I have a client where we were fleshing out their site in a subdirectory (example.com/sub). Now I want to hand it over to them, but first move the wp files to the root (example.com).
How can I do this safely? I am familiar with FTP and some .htaccess stuff, but I’m not too sharp when it comes to php and anything much deeper.
I tried following the steps here (https://discussion.dreamhost.com/thread-135644.html?highlight=move+one-click+install) but I was not successful. I get this when I try to access the root:
[i]Warning: require(./wp-blog-header.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/eastsidemow/eastsidemeals.org/index.php on line 17
Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘./wp-blog-header.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/local/php5/lib/pear’) in /home/eastsidemow/eastsidemeals.org/index.php on line 17[/i]
Any help is greatly appreciated!!
