If you want to see your site by typing http://www.yoursite.com then it should be in default directory .

You must know this

A name after a forward slash after complete url represents the name of the directory you installed your wordpress or any other site . so install your site in default directory and create a new directory and move your existing files to that new directory and install WP directly without choosing a subdirectory .

Again, I’d recommend HostGator where they provide everything you need.

I don’t have an account with these. MUST I get an account with both of these?

I suggest you get that instead. If you need something free, get KompoZer. If you want to pay lots of money, get Dreamweaver. if you just want to transfer files, use Filezilla (http://filezilla-project.org). filezilla is multi-platform.

for for Gareth, the reason why it probably won’t allow you to put it on root is because the HTML files should probably be in the directory something like /public_html so you might want to set that as your remote default directory.

some hosting companies only give you a subdirectory (I doubt it though they would be free probably), so it may be different. look in the subdirectories for something like html or putlic_html or htdocs.

I thought it was strange they told me to put it there, I tried putting it in the root, but it wouldn’t allow me to.

I will try hostgator.

Thanks, keep up the good work!

WordPress is PHP/MySQL based, so no reason to put it in that folder. It’s possible to install it on the root directory of your domain.

I’d recommend a host like HostGator where they are known for WordPress hosting.

My hosting company told me install wordpress into the cgi-bin folder on my site, which works, but this means that the URL for my site now looks like http://www.example.com/cgi-bin/wordpress

How can I get it so that the URL is http://www.example.com?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Apart from this problem, I love it!

It seems when I uploaded files two were left behind. I guess the important two.
