How to Move a WordPress Site (3 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I have a current site - http://www.sitename.com - and a newly built WordPress site that lives at - http://www.sitename.com/wordpress - and I would like to just make the WordPress site replace the current one.

    I've looked at the How-To doc that WordPress has for doing this, I just need it explained in layman's terms as I am not very familiar with it.

    Can someone tell me the easiest way to do this? Thank you.

    It's quite easy :) First, move the actual WordPress files to your primary folder (most probably named public_html).

    Next, reconfigure WordPress to work from the new location. To this follow the instructions from this article. That's all :)

    if it is just that change then I would add the following into the new installs wp-config.php file then move the whole site into your webroot.

    define('WP_HOME','http://www.yoursitehere.co.uk/');
    define('WP_SITEURL','http://www.yoursitehere.co.uk/');

    This will change all the settings needed in the database to match the url.
