I have a problem with Wordpress webside transfer. I have my wordpress files in mywebside.com/wordpress and i want change to mywebside.com .

In wordpress :

I changed Website address (URL) to mywebside.com . I have not changed Wordpress adress (URL) (mywebside.com/wordpress).


I copied .htaccess and index.php to the parent directory(mywebside.com) I changed content index.php ->>

require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/wordpress/wp-blog-header.php' );


Now when I run mywebside.com it's 404 error, but when i run e.g mywebside.com/contacts then everything works.

  • When you say you changed the website URL, how did you change it? Is there a specific reason you included wp-blog-header.php and not index.php? – Tom J Nowell Mar 10 '19 at 15:57
