My website www.makowerarchitects.com loads up 'something' (for lack of a better word), whereas the correct Home page that needs to show upon visiting the site shows under www.makowerarchitects.com/website...which is the folder where my wordpress installation is. I'm using a template and I never went into changing anything on the template, except add two additional pages (different from the Home Page, which is there by default from the template I'm using). My .htaccess file looks like this:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?makowerarchitects.com$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/website/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /website/$1
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?makowerarchitects.com$
RewriteRule ^(/)?$ /website/index.php [L]

I'm sure it's just something wrong with some redirecting somewhere, just don't know where. Please help. Thanks.

Can you show me your home page template code? – Vinod Dalvi Mar 8 '13 at 11:40

Sounds like you uploaded the wordpress files in a folder called "wordpress." To make everything right, do this. 1. use an FTP client to connect to your site. 2. delete the "wordpress" directory. 3. open the wordpress folder on your hard drive, select all the files inside it, and copy them to your site using the ftp client.

This way, the wordpress files are at the root directory, so when users go to your URL, wordpress will display.
