I've installed my blog at www.mysite.com/blog

I want to re-write the URL to take out the blog part so you can access it at www.mysite.com

I added a rewrite rule in .htaccess file, but I noticed that when I go to the rewritten URL, I am not logged into my account; I would have to go through the original /blog to be logged in.

What is the problem here and how can I solve it?

Wordpress has support for installing in a different directory to your desired home directory.

Have a read of the two bullet points near the top of this page: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

  • Changing the home URL worked for me.
