Default easy joomla problem

Hi I have been working on my awful web skills. Right now I have a site..

www.computerheroes.ca/joomla

and I was wondering how to make it just be www.computerheroes.ca
which currently goes to my old site. I was trying to do a redirect but it wouldn't work.

Simply move the entire contents of the "Joomla" folder into the root folder of the website. After you move everything, open the "Configuration.php" file. You will need to change the following to reflect the new path to the files:

var $live_site
var $tmp_path
var $log_path

For example "var $live_site" will have the setting of:
"http://www.computerheroes.ca/joomla"

You will change it to:
"http://www.computerheroes.ca"
