Wordpress Install directory

Being someone that worries about stupid little things I have to ask is there any reason why I shouldn’t install wordpress at the top level directory of my domain? If so should I make a page in the top level to point to wordpress or redirect my domain to that folder. Sorry the option in the one-click installer has made me worried.

If it’s going to be your main site, install it into the main folder.

You can always move it later if you decide to have a different landing page and use WP purely as the blogging component of any future new site :wink:

Go ahead and leave that One-Click directory box empty so it installs it to your main site.


Thank you both. I just worry about the details because I know how much of a headache they can cause later
