    Problems making wordpress visible on my domain, by Alan Terrill

    I’ve installed wordpress on my domain in the directory follies.org.uk/wp, as I have an existing website sitting in the root directory. I’ve built my new website and everything is ready to go and replace the original website. I’ve followed the instructions in the document under the Method II section. I’ve got down as far as point 9 and hit a problem. I can open the index.php file but I don’t see exactly what is suggested in the instructions -it says :Change the following and save the file. Change the line that says:
    require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . ‘/wp-blog-header.php’ );
    to the following, using your directory name for the WordPress core files:
    require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . ‘/wordpress/wp-blog-header.php’ );
    Mine says :
    /** Load WordPress Bootstrap */
    require_once( dirname( __FILE__ ) . ‘/admin.php’ );

    /** Load WordPress dashboard API */
    require_once(ABSPATH . ‘wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php’);
    Which part do I change such that my new site opens from follies.org.uk? I’ve removed the old index.htm to stop any confusion between the old and new sites.
