    I am new to wordpress and have just been working over the setup etc for the car dealer theme and have a minor setup issue.

    The hosting provider configured my URL for as “domain.com/wordpress” and I just want domain.com I had a read around and setup an index.php in the httpdocs folder but then all my car dealer module admin links are broken as they include “wordpress” in the URL.

    I have no problem deleting the installs and starting again but some pointers on the initial setup would be good.
    Thanks..

    Hi Matthew

    I would delete everything and start again. If your using the installer provided by your hosting provider simply remove the /wordpress directory path so that it installs it into your root folder.

    If your unsure, just ask your hosting provider todo it for you as most good providers are happy to help.

    Leave the directory field blank when doing a new installation
