Redirecting an existing domain and WordPress


#1

Situation: I installed WordPress to a sub-folder. Would this redirect technique work to make ‘mydomain.com’ point to ‘mydomain.com/wordpress/index.php’ and still behave correctly?


#2

This technique would cause problems for you, because your qualified domain “mydomain.com” is already fully hosted. You can use an html or javascript redirect in the index.html page on your root directory. You can also use the htaccess file, which is my preferred method. There are a lot of good resources about htaccess in the knowledgebase.

Thanks for the warning.
