updated my WP site URL and now the site is broken...

Case ID #3484   -   Setup / Installation


I didn't want to loose my current website while I was building out the WP site, so I created it in a sub directory called "portfolio". I just updated the WP URL to have it show at the root directory and everything broke, including my ability to login to the admin area, even when I take out the directory name portfolio-page/.

The original word press URL was:

and the URL was changed to:

I copied all the files from /portfolio-page/ to the root directory which seemed to do something but it's still broken, I now get this on the homepage:

Warning: require(/home/greg411/public_html/wp-includes/load.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/greg411/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 21

Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required '/home/greg411/public_html/wp-includes/load.php' (include_path='.:/opt/php54/lib/php') in /home/greg411/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 21

Can you tell me what I need to do to remedy the problem?

Thanks – Molly
