I wanted to know what was the proper way to install Wordpress so that when i visit my website it accesses the blog directly.
However, when installing using the Elefante Free Scripts option it does not allow me to install it without typing a directory name.

Well done for getting it installed :) Just so you know for future reference, i belive that if you put a / in the box for the folder it will install to the root.

Thanks for helping. This is my first site.

I installed WP to the server in a folder named blog in the root directory. I did this using a service offered by my hosting account, a one click install.

I followed that You Tube video then and saved my html pages as php pages with the php at the start of each page creating a template for each one.

Is this way off?
