I am having my site on www.abc.com which is hosted with hostgator. It is installed in public_html, and I installed Drupal in a sub-folder.

Whenever I go to my site, the address bar of the browser shows www.abc.com/techspot, when I would like it to show just www.abc.com.

How can I achieve this?

Comment instead of answer as I'm not sure, but if you dig around in the .htaccess file, I think you'll find a "baseurl" setting. Uncomment and add the directory "/techspot" to it. That could help. – Letharion Nov 23 '12 at 9:44

In your htaccess file you can set the rewrite rule:

# Modify the RewriteBase if you are using Drupal in a subdirectory or in a
# VirtualDocumentRoot and the rewrite rules are not working properly.
# For example if your site is at http://example.com/drupal uncomment and
# modify the following line:
# RewriteBase /site

hi did that but still not working.. this is my website, techiequickie.com, so a bit of improvement is that whe I type my site name it is not loading with techiequickie.com/techiequickie anymore it is simply loading techiequickie.com but after the main page the rest of the pages are back to normal showing like this techiequickie.com/Techiequickie/user but i want to show only like this techiequickie.com/user – mamoth Nov 22 '12 at 14:53
