Last thing...! :)
 
Ok, thanks for all the help this site has provided. I am so close to being done. Ok the last thing I need to do is to point my domain to my wordpress page. For instance, my domain is www.example.com . This points to nothing. BUT www.example.com/wordpress points to my page. How can i get www.example.com to point to my wordpress page? Thanks.

This is not an Atahualpa issue, it is a wordpress issue and you should ask at wordpress.org, however I can give you two suggestions,
1) reinstall wordpress into the high level of the site (much work) or
2) put this little inndx.html in the highlevel of the site
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>
</title>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url= wordpress" />
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

What this does, if someone types 'example.com' this index.html is run and based on the content="N;url=wordpress" where N= the number of seconds to wait till the redirect is done, and url=is where you want to be rediredt to.

All I did on one of my WP sites, where the WP files were in /wordpress, was to put /wordpress/index.php into the root, and delete the existing index.html. Maybe some installations need a more complex treatment, but this worked fine for me. Oh, and you also have to change the Settings/General URLs. I have my Wordpress URL as domainname.com/wordpress and the blog address as domainname.com. No trailing slashes.

This says you have to move the WP .htaccess file into root, but when I did that, I got errors.
