I've inherited a WP install for my church and I'm trying to get my head around it. I'm new to WP, but have several years of casual use of MovableType under my belt.
I've handled upgrading my plugins and removing unused plugins and I need to upgrade WP. Before I do so, however, I'd like to get a dev & production setup in place so I can try changes out before they go 'live'. Before I can tackle that, I think I need to remedy how WP is installed.
Right now my site is published to
www.site.com, but WP is installed in
www.site.com/dev. Typically, WP is installed in the same directory where the site is published, right? So my production WP install should be in
How do I move my WP install then and make sure the themes, plugins, etc follow? Right now in my general settings page I have
www.site.com/dev as my WordPress Address and
www.site.com as my Site Address.
