Changing an Add-On Domain to Primary Domain (3 posts)

    OK WordPress experts.....I have a WordPress installation in an add-on domain in my server, in a separate directory in public_html.

    I want to change the add-on domain and make it the primary domain for the server.

    Can I leave all the WP files in the folder/directory that the add-on is pointed to?

    Thanks, Andy.

    Not sure but the following Codex page might help:

    That is helpful, but its a slightly different scenario as the URL of the blog is not changing, but the domain is going to pointed to the public_html file instead of the add on domain's directory.

    I really think this is just about this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory

    But as its a big site I'd rather hear this from Otto or someone who is really in the "know."
