Thanks, Patrick. Because there was an issue with the database import/export I am in the process of restoring the site to the original sub folder.I am currently waiting for my ISP to restore the database (so there is really no site to see at the moment)
Once this is restored I will follow the steps provided in the codex:
Can you help clarify the search and replace step(s) in the process?
Step 1 (in the pre-instructions) advise to only change the post table, but later in step 11 (primary instructions) it refers to using the search and replace tool for the images - yet I did not see a table for images...
I selected all of the tables (this may be why my database needs to be restored)because step 2 in the pre-instructions referred to "all instances.
Finally, if I am able to follow the steps and all works correctly with the restored files & database, step 12 (permissions) - do I assign 0644 to all files and folders in WP or just some?
