Just spent 2 months designing first Magento store from a previous oscommerce store. Development store was under root as http://www.smalltubesandtires.com/magento Before the move to root, under Config:Web I removed the /magento from the secure & unsecure area. I followed the directions in this link: http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/groups/227/move_magento_to_another_directory

The only thing I was not sure of was this:

Delete the cache data:

rm -rf var/cache/ var/session/

Does that mean delete within the folders, or delete the folders entirely?

I can access the back end of the site and images show on the back end. On the front end the homepage loads, but the image does not. The image still is trying to load from the /magento folder from the previous url. Selecting any link on the site gives a 500 error.

I have flushed cache and reindexed the site in config. Anyone have any tips? So close, yet so far!

It may be due to the server having suPHP enabled.
Try changing all files to 644 while all directories to 755.
Also turn off the rewrites.

Hope this help.

Yes thank you! That did the trick. Only turned off the rewrites, did not need to change permissions. The issue with the image on the homepage, was due to me not recalling that was a hard coded image link.

Yahoo, up and running!
