    Transitioning to root directory, now links dont work. help!

    i transitioned from http://www.robgoldman.com/wordpress/ subdirectory to the root directory. Now the new site is up and running (http://www.robgoldman.com) however none of the links on the site connect to the posts or pages. Instead I get an "Internal Server Error" when clicking on anything.

    However none of the Permalinks (when I'm logged in) show that /wordpress/ is part of the page or post titles.

    FYI, when I login to the Admin Panel (wp-admin), on the General settings, the Wordpess address (URL) and the Blog address (URL) both have "http://robgoldman.com" in those fields. But the fields are greyed out and un-editable. meanwhile I've read some tutorials and I added the following to the wp-config file:
    Code:
    define('WP_HOME','http://robgoldman.com');
    define('WP_SITEURL','http://robgoldman.com');
    define('RELOCATE',true);

    please advise what I'm missing. thanks.

    afaik that should've done it - just to be sure, check the .htaccess file as well.

    `RewriteRule . /wordpress/index.php [L]`
