    How do I link my CURRENT Wordpress blog to my sub domain?

    Here is my situation

    I have a Powweb hosted URL called http://www.julesdesign.ca/
    I also have a blog called http://julesdesignca.wordpress.com/
    I want to make my blog an extension of my web site to appear as: http://www.julesdesign.ca/blog/

    The problem

    How do I create this script? At this point, Powweb CAN make a link from my domain to Wordpress using the code generator at https://www.simplescripts.com/script...tall:Wordpress

    BUT...
    The trouble is that it will create a NEW Wordpress account. I do not want a new Wordpress account. I want to use my current Wordpress account. I tried the import function on the simplescripts page without success.

    Can someone please outline step by step what I need to do to link my Wordpress blog to a sub domain?

    Muchos Gracias

    Create a file in your blog/ directory named index.php that contains this line. The permissions of this file should be at least 600 (rw-------), which is fine, and certainly not more than 644 (rw-r--r--).
    PHP Code:
    <? header("Location: http://julesdesignca.wordpress.com/"); ?>

    Fine Bruce but what is 644 (rw-r--r--)?
    English man! Not all of us speak PHP :-)

    Create this file on your computer, use whatever FTP program you have to upload it to the blog/ directory (or use the FileManager in OPS). I'm not sure how to use the FileManager, but in a FTP program, a file can be right-clicked and the 'permissions' of that file can be changed. But the default permissions of an uploaded file are probably correct to begin with. Just create the file and upload it, if you run into any problems post here again.
