Launching my site (2 posts)

    I'm ready to launch my WordPress site.
    I have an existing site set up via iWeb but have redesigned it with WordPress. The location of the iWeb site is http://www.alkpurusha.net and the location of the WordPress site is http://www.alkpurusha.net/WordPress.
    If I understand correctly, first I delete the iWeb site via FTP on the server, then simply shift all the WordPress files to that same location. Is this correct, or am I being too simplistic?

    This depends on the host configuration...If you can, install WP in a sub-folder or your host account by pointing a sub-domain to it...when that WP site is done just point the main domain to the sub-folder..discuss with host...this way you can keep old site in tact (could even redo that and once the main domain is pointing to new folder make the old site a sub-domain)...

    Point is to try to keep both active for some time...
