    So my website: mydomain.com has a Wordpress blog site on it in the directory mydomain.com/help. However, I think, calling it a 'blog' is better so I want to change the directory to mydomain.com/blog.

    However whenever I do this, Wordpress can't seem to find the directory properly or there is some issues. How can I successfully change it?

    I've never tried just moving directories but did you try just going into the settings panel under general I believe and change the help to blog? Otherwise you may need to create a new installation and upload a backup. Back everything up first.

    Changing the settings did it, thanks man! I thought I had to go into each file and change it otherwise I was just going to delete the database/tables and re-install it.

    Yup.
    Wordpress is dead simple when it comes to moving. :)
    Glad you figured it out.
