Domain Change (3 posts)

    Hi all,

    I'm getting ready to make a domain name change. My weblog is currently located on a subdirectory of my current domain name. I'm wanting to MOVE my blog to a subdirectory on my new domain name, and rename the directory (the blog directory) to simply "blog". I'm buying the domain name, then switching my hosting account over to it.

    What do I need to do to move my blog?

    Gah. I just reread what I wrote. Confusing. Okay, recap:

    http://www.currentsite.net/thoughtpad is my current address. I'm buying newsite.org. I want my NEW blog address to be:

    http://www.newsite.org/blog. I won't actually have to MOVE anything, since I'm going to be changing my webhost account over to host newsite.org. What will I need to do to set my blog up at /blog? I did a test run and just renamed thoughtpad to blog. It worked, but the stylesheet was all messed up, so I'm guessing I need to change a directory structure setting somewhere.

    I figured it out. I just had to change the blog address inside the Option panel, then rename the folder. That got everything working. I'll just set up a redirect from my old blog folder to my new one.
