I don't know enough wordpress to actually be able to find the correct wording to get any real information on my problem.
Someone asked me to set up a simple news system in a already running website, so everything is already working as pure html all around.
I didn't really want to obstruct the root directory of the website so I installed WordPress in a /wp/ folder and I managed to setup the news fine but my URLs display that www.xxx.com/wp/news_name/ which I don't want.
I would like some guidance as to what all this is referred as.
I went to the dashboard main options and changed the paths WordPress Address: www.mysite.com/wp/ Site Address: www.mysite.com/ or www.mysite.com/news/
or just went to the permalink page and setup the custom path as: www.mysite.com/news/%post_name%/
but any of this returns a 404.
My guess is that there is something to do with .htaccess files but I got no luck tempering with it the way I am used to.
Thanks for any info of the subject and sorry if it is a overly asked problem but I can't seem to find my exact problem using the wording I know,
