Move Wordpress To Main Domain


Recommended Posts

I have searched this but can't find specific instructions that work.

 

I have wordpress in its own folder www.subdomain.domain/blog

 

I also have a redirect from the main domain to subdomain here

so if you go to www.domain it will go to www.subdomain.domain/blog (complicated)

 

But the address shown on the site is always www.subdomain.domain.

 

How can I move the files so it is www.domain ?

 

or is there another way to do this?

 

thanks,

Andy

Just move all the files and folders to the public_html folder but you will have to go into the Administration panel of your WordPress installation and change the settings to reflect the change. You will also have to manually edit the database with the new location. Sorry, I can't remember which value it stored in.

 

And you might want to read this Moving WordPress information.

The instructions about Moving Wordpress have not changed.

I had a site at sub.domain/wordpress and (without moving any files) got it to appear as sub.domain (without the /wordpress in any of the URLs) by following the instructions here: http://codex.wordpre...s_Own_Directory
