    Hi
    i use wp on my site for 2 years now. it is install in a folder named "/blog"
    now i am thinking moving all my site content into wordpress, so i think it would be good to move it down to the Root folder of my site.

    question : how to do this the good way ??

    don't want to miss things up with SEO, my page archived into Google, getting 404 errors, etc... how to avoid this ?

    example of present links :
    http://www.mysite.com/ = custom php/html homepage (non WP)
    http://www.mysite.com/blog/ = index page of my WP
    http://www.mysite.com/blog/2010/title-xyz = singlepage link inside WP (with date auto-added in front)

    i got 7 categories. One is named the same as the WP folder, which means it's named "/blog/category/blog"

    ...so in the final step i would like my site to bee all on WP so my links, i guess, would look like this then
    http://www.mysite.com = index page of my WP
    http://www.mysite.com/2010/title-xyz -or even better for me- http://www.mysite.com/category-name/title-xyz = single page
    I am thinking about using WP as my CMS now. So my homepage would be remaded like a magazine-style and my Articles would be divided by the the Categories, and the standard News would be in the Blog page.
