    I was creating my site in sub folder before making it live.
    It’s now ready Though I’m not totally sure how to move it.

    Right now everything is in a folder that has the same name as the phpMyAdmin database.
    Do I just take everything in that folder and move it to the public_html folder?

    Don’t I just have to move the wordpress folder out of the staging folder and then take a few files (I think something like the .htaccess and index.php? )out and put them in the public_html folder?

    Here’s the structure now…


    This should be pretty simple… When you are ready to make the WP site live, you:

    — log in the WP admin, go to the Setting section, and updated the "Wordpress Address" and "Blog Address" fields to the correct, live, URL. Save and log out.
    — Move all the WP files out from your staging folder and into the correct location on the live site (I’m assuming that’s the public_html folder in your case)
