WordPress Directory Structure Question



I want to have a blog using wordpress. I created a sub-domain and then installed wp into a /wordpress directory. After some further reading, this may not have been the best plan.

Can I just move everything to the root of the sub-domain? Or do I need to start over?

Any help would be appreciated.


I think that’s a good way to install it, personally. Keep it in its own logical place. It can still be read from the root of your (sub)domain by following these instructions:

Thanks for the help.

That’s the way it was recommended at the first place I stumbled onto. But as I read more articles and posts, people had wp in their usual website as a sub-directory or at root level on a sub-domain. Bottom line is that its flexible. Which is good. Thanks again.
