Pointing domain to a subdirectory

I installed my site to
but now i want when people go to
I will be taken there. Is this as easy as movinng the index.php file from the wordpress directory to the root and sssimply edit it to say

 * Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn't do anything, but loads
 * wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
 * @package WordPress

     * Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
     * @var bool
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);

    /** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
    require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/wordpress/wp-blog-header.php' );


This isn’t simply change index.php directory but moving whole wordpress.

The procedure to giving WP its own directory is explained here:


In your case I guess you’ll be interested in “Using a pre-existing subdirectory install”
