That is the general idea, for "moving" an installation, but as I pointed out before, if you do it that way you will lose the ability to upgrade via the "one-click installer.

This isn't necessarily "bad", if you are willing to manually do the upgrades yourself (it is *not* that hard to do). [winkl]

If, however, you *do* want to rely on the "one-click" robot for upgrading, simply using the Control Panel -> Goodies -> One-Click screens to delete the first install, and them using it again to create a new install in the correct directory will give you the functioning address you desire *and* preserve the "one-click upgrade" goodness.

I'm sorry if this confused you; I probably could have explained it better Sad .

okay, so i jumped the gun and deleted the original wp folder in my url's directory and uploaded it's contents to my url's directory - so basically, I just eliminated the wp parent folder...

now, instead of just index of/ and a wordpress link, I have all of my files showing. rrrrr.

i knew this would be difficult but i will be bald by the time i get it straight!

thanks rl and lensman for your help!

editted: it appears that some files may have not made the reinstall...hey, i figured something out, myself!

The result of that is that your path's are now messed up, and your WordPress is "functional", but can't properly locates it's templates.

It is still not too late to just delete everything in, and below, your theineptblogger.com directory, so that it is "empty", and make a new "one-click" install Wink .

Otherwise, you will need to tweak a few thing as indicated in the "Moving WordPress" document I linked you too earlier, to get things working properly (and you will no longer be able to "one-click" upgrade).

Don't get discouraged, you are almost "there!" Smile

thanks.

i'm in the process of redoing the one-touch install - how do i make sure that i don't end up with it in the same place again?
ex. url/wordpress/ ?

okay - new issue: i cannot empty my folder /url. so therefore i can't redo the one-click install properly. I'd deleted my dbase, and created a new one...tried the reinstall again. How the heck can I delete everything from my url folder? I keep trying the entire folder, the individual files and nothing will erase...it just keeps reappearing!

In the "Install to" section of the "one-click" form, select *only* the domain name (/url) as in:

install to: http://www.theineptblogger.com/ <leave *this* section blank*>

Also, make *sure* you deleted any "sneaky" hidden .htaccess file that may be left in the /url directory before proceeding! Wink

yes, see above ^^^ I can't delete everything using my ftp program. Any suggestions? I renamed the Garbage folder as Wordpress...hoped it might spark the delete function to actually work! Tongue

Also...don't forget to delete that "Garbage" directory that is there now...

..ooops! It looks like you have it in the wrong place again, as I am *now* seeing a WordPress directory once more. Sad

Ok...let's do this a step at a time. First, don't make any more changes for the moment, ok? It's kinda hard to hit a moving target Wink

Sit back, take a break, and tell what ftp client program you are using so I can talk you through the deletion process, ok?

EDIT:
FLASH! Woo Hoo! it looks like you've now "done it!" Smile Cngratulations!

I think....we may have success! (i just created a new /url folder and renamed the old one that had the contents in it that wouldn't delete)

Yep...that'll work too! Good Deal, and congratulations! Do you now want to delete the folder that you renamed? IF so, what ftp program are you using?
