Need To Make Massive Changes

Recommended Posts

Hokay, the first and foremost thing I would like to accomplish is to move my blog to a different subdomain. I'm using Wordpress, and I have no idea where to begin. That, by itself is not such a big deal. I'm sure there are tutorials (maybe even here) that cover the matter in detail.

 

After that, I would like to have my 'overlaid' domain be the default. This I'm sure will involve the help desk and probably be much more involved.

 

The rest of the work is top-end, and I can do myself (new blogs, etc.).

 

Anyone who knows more than me care to offer advice or doomsday prophecies? :)

Simplest way to move it to another subdomain would be to create the subdomain and then rename the folder it creates, rename your current folder to the new subdomain you created, rename the new folder the old subdomain name. That will set those pointers up correctly. Next you need to change your blog's internal address to the new subdomain. You may need to make an edit in the database. You can then delete the old subdomain if you like.

 

When I moved mine I exported everything, edited the mysql dump and then had the help desk import it back into a new database.

 

Not sure what you mean by 'overlaid' domain to be the default.

Well, I'm into moving it now. The spiffy WP export/import has gotten me to where I think I want to be. The users, however, would be in MySQL correct? I don't have many, so moving those by hand are fine rather than bothering the help desk.

 

The 'overlaid' was that voyles.us is on top of danvoyles.us. You would think I could remember proper terminology, but I can't. Sad. Still, it turns out to be a non-issue.

 

Right now, I'm rolling through the changeover and getting everything going again to be sure it works properly. I should have waited for your post, as it seems much simpler than my re-install and import/export. Especially since I had to cut up the export. php.ini limits the upload to 2MB, mine was 3.8MB.

Let us know how it goes. Your users are stored in the database so they will have to be moved manually if the export/import doesn't get them.

 

The term is "parking". You want to park one domain over another.
