Hi, I tried to look for solutions, but i couldn't get it. i hope anybody can help me to solve my issue.

i have a primary website domain : "example.com

i install wordpress inside the folder : main

the website can be access by visiting : "http://www.example.com/main/index.php

What i want to do is to remove the subfolder name from url, so when i access the link, it will show only "http://www.example.com/index.php" so the subfolder didn't appear in the url.

i tried this code bellow, but it still show the folder in the url browser.
# .htaccess main domain to subdirectory redirect
# Do not change this line.
RewriteEngine on

# Change example.com to be your main domain.
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?example.com$

# Change 'subdirectory' to be the directory you will use for your main domain.
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/subdirectory/

# Don't change the following two lines.
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

# Change 'subdirectory' to be the directory you will use for your main domain.
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /subdirectory/$1

# Change example.com to be your main domain again.
# Change 'subdirectory' to be the directory you will use for your main domain
# followed by / then the main file for your site, index.php, index.html, etc.
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?example.com$
RewriteRule ^(/)?$ subdirectory/index.html [L]
Anybody can help me to resolve my problem? really appreciate your help :)
Thank you.
