    Can WordPress be installed in the root directory as opposed to a subfolder?

    I've installed WordPress in a subdirectory but there is a problem with the email form where in the test site that is at root level was working just fine but when I copied the website to Yahoo sites on a subdirectory the form stops working. I cannot use the .htaccess file so I don't know what else to do. Please advise

    Yahoo Small Business web hosting is designed to have WordPress installed in a sub-directory. You can install it in the root level, but this can break your permalinks and other functionality. .htaccess is not supported due to the platform being shared hosting. If you have designed your site and then imported into Yahoo, this may be why the form is not working. You will need to correct the mailto address for the form. For assistance and more information about WordPress anytime, please see the WordPress Codex, WordPress's online user manual.

    • Should I recommend to move to another hosting provider that has a ticketing system in place to solve this kind of issues? I'm web developer and although I like many of yahoo hosting services features I don't like there's no dedicated service to help customers solve specific issues.
