[resolved] I need a WP link to changing the URL(Subfolder) of the Blog (4 posts)

    I’m sure others have had this problem.

    I’m moving my web site to a different plan with my provider and I’m testing and training myself before hand.

    1. I put WP in a folder called test,
    used the same database names as the orginal Blog
    and everything worked in the folder ..../test/

    2. I then deleted the new database tables
    uploaded the backed up(original) database tables

    3.I then went to the web address and get a 404 error.

    $.When I type ...../test/wp-admin/, the browser takes me to the soon to be old URL http://www.outdoorupdate.com/Fishing/Blogs/State/Florida/SaltWater/BigBend/ not to the test at http://www.outdoorupdate.com/test/

    And I’m almost sure others have had this problem. Can someone point me in the right direction for info?

    Thanks
    Steve

    PS I've been staring at this stuff for a while and I did a forum search and maybe the answer was in front of me but I haven't found it
