    Did you install Wordpress here: h**p://mydomain-name.com/wp/ or here: h**p://mydomain-name.com/
    Normally if you set permalinks to /%postname%/ it should be like yourdomain.com/your-post

    I think you installed Wordpress elsewhere.

    This. ^
    When you install WP and it asks what your install directory should be, leave it blank. Then it will install to your root.

    Either you have another post called WP as the parent of all of your other posts or you installed it in a subfolder.
