    Moving wordpress to subfolder problem

    Hi, I am trying to move my wordpress site from root to a folder called 'wordpress'.

    I am following these steps: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_Wo..._Own_Directory

    However, at Step 3 where it says "Login to the new location. It might now be http://example.com/wordpress/wp-admin/", i am getting a page not found 404 error.

    Can someone plz help me out?

    Personally, I wouldnt move it to a folder called Wordpress. The trick with Wordpress is to try to prevent bots/visitors from knowing that you are using Wordpress. The reason is if they know you are using Wordpress then there is a series of things they can try (the might not succeed) to get into your wp-admin.

    With that in mind, I would move it to a folder with your website name in it.
    Now how to get your website working in that subfolder.

    Do you have access to PHP MY ADMIN? Who is your webhost?
