Ah, I think you forgot to tell me to move my root document folder as well. It needs to be in a folder called wordpress. –  Shehzad009 Jan 3 '12 at 12:26
    
not necessarily if your wordpress is http://"My IP Address"/folder that will work as well but use the wordpress address (URL) ""http://"My IP Address"/folder"" –  phantom.omaga Jan 3 '12 at 14:55
