Changing address path for new install

I recently transferred my omeka site from a localhost to my webhost. The install is working fine and everything looks great, but I can only access the omeka site when I navigate to I would like my omeka site to open directly from, but I'm wondering how to do this.

Omeka works fine in a subdirectory or at the site root.

You can simply move all the files and folders that are currently in the "omeka" folder up one level, so they're directly sitting in the parent folder. This means all the files, including .htaccess.

Of course, this only applies if you don't currently have content or a site at the domain root. If you do, you'll have to come up with somewhere else to put that if you want Omeka there.

Nope, I don't have any content. My omeka site is intended to be the only content on the site, which is why I want to move it up one level.

This is a bit of a newbie question, but will I need to transfer my full omeka install back to my computer using gFTP and then reupload? Or is there an easy way to move the file up without going through the long file downloads/uploads?

Thanks for the prompt response!
