How to serve Wordpress from the root directory when it is installed in a subdirectory
I installed Wordpress into a Wordpress subdirectory.
(domainname.org/wordpress) But I want the Wordpress site to be served
from my root directory. There is a mechanism for that in Wordpress.
The "WordPress Address (URL)" field is set to that Wordpress
subdirectory. The "Site Address (URL)" field is set to my root
directory. But that does not do it.
Further research says that
I need to edit the .htaccess file that came with Wordpress and put that
in my root directory. Now this is my first foray into InMotion hosting,
but I've edited my .htaccess and various other hidden files many times
over many years in my aplus.net account, so that's not a mystery to me.
What is a mystery is finding it! Even when I ask FileZilla to show me
the hidden files, it appears that InMotion blocks it from doing so.
So can someone tell me what I need to do to have my site served from the root directory?
(I initially posted this in a different location, but this looks like a better place to ask it. Sorry for the duplication!)
