WordPress & hosting issues
volvoist said 11 months, 2 weeks ago:
I installed WordPress for my hosting account thru GoDaddy over the weekend. I spent most of the day Sunday creating my WordPress site. When I tried to make it so that when you go to my site, http://www.swedishbrickyard.com, it would redirect you to my WordPress site, http://www.swedishbrickyard.com/wordpress, it’s not working. I tried forwarding with masking, I tried the instructions through WordPress on moving my index.php and web.config files, nothing is working. Up until today, when I fixed my hosting IP address through the A record, I was getting an error that read “This website is temporarily unavailable.” No w I can at least see my old site, but I get a 500 Internal Server error when I try to access both http://www.swedishbrickyard.com/wordpress, and my admin site. Help! Nothing is working.

It sounds like you had installed WordPress into a subfolder by mistake, if you intended for the pages to come up under http://www.swedishbrickyard.com/ directly.
In those instances, I advise reviewing the following articles on properly moving your WordPress installation into your root directory. Some of the details covered may also be able to help you correct the current database connection issues I am seeing with your WordPress installation online:

I tried fixing it as if it were a broken installation, with no luck. And I can’t move it to a new directory because that involves logging in to my WordPress admin site, which I can’t do because it gives me a 500 Internal Server error. I spent almost 8 hours designing my website through WordPress, and it sounds like the only thing I’m going to be able to do to fix this is to delete the WordPress installation and re-install it. Is there a back-door way to get into the WordPress admin so that I don’t lose all of my work?

@volvoist – You can move the WordPress installation without access to the WordPress Admin area, through the Hosting Control Center, with the articles @chrisg pointed out.

Were you able to get these issues worked out with your WordPress installation? If there is still an issue, let us know what part of the instructions I previously referenced are not clear for your own account issues.
