I am trying to rewrite the files from the sub-directory www.mywebsite.com/renew (where I built the site) to the main directory www.mywebsite.com (now that I have completed my updates).

I have moved the files from the /renew directory into the main. Re-written the .config file and the .htaccess file so that when you go to www.mywebsite.com the correct index page displays, however, when you click any link it points to the sub-directory again in the address bar (ie. http://www.mywebsite.com/renew/books-products.html).

Does anyone know how to fix this?
