I know this question has been asked many times for the past versions of Drupal, but none of the solutions I've found works for Drupal 7.12.
I used to have an .htaccess file placed inside the document folder alongside with Drupal, and it partially worked on older versions when entering the front- and live-page of my website (which you can now only enter via "default-URL"). For reference, you were able to to enter the live page with http://pavescorner.com/live, but after the patch and some other maintenances on my website, the link has to be like this http://pavescorner.com/drupal/live.
During those tests, when I tried to make another working .htaccess file, I accidentally destroyed the version working for me, and now you can only enter my homepage with the /drupal subdirectory.
What should I put in my .htaccess file so that /drupal doesn't appear in the URLs for my site?
