I need to move the footer up because the text is pretty long and doesn't fit to it. And I have no idea how to do it. Any suggestions?

Hi T_T Welcome to TeX.SE! Have you looked at the geometry package? – cmhughes May 9 '12 at 19:17
Not yet. My experience with TeX is only a day. – T_T May 9 '12 at 19:19
in which case, see the documentation :) – cmhughes May 9 '12 at 19:21

I am not sure that I understand the question. If the text was long I'd expect the footer to need to move down to make more space. In either case the space left for the footer is governed by \footskip so you can \addtolength\footskip{1cm} or -2\baselinskip or whatever length needed.

It's exactly what I need! – T_T May 9 '12 at 19:23
