Migrating WordPress Website (4 posts)

    I have wordpress installed on a subdomain (wordpress.example.com). As the webhost is using Plesk Panel, WordPress was installed automatically as an application on the subdomain. I am creating a new website on wordpress and would like install wordpress on the root directory of the domain (example.com) and move the data over once finished. I cannot develop the wordpres website on the domain's root directory now because I would like to keep the current site "live". Can somebody tell me how to move the finished wordpress website to the root directory once it is finished? The problem I am having is trying to figure out how to do this with WordPress being installed as an application on Plesk Panel. Thanks.

    Here is another tutorial on this: Migrating a WordPress Website. The manual process is rather extensive. The Automatic WordPress Backup plugin is sweet and can be used to make backups on Amazon S3 and works wonders for quicker WordPress migration.

    Go to your plesk panel and find phpmyadmin and click it.
    Click on the name of the database you created (for your WordPress installation)
    Click on the wp_options link and then change the row "siteurl" and remove the WordPress section (As per ur example wordpress.example.com) and press go
    Then click the '>' button
    Then edit the row => home
    Also remove the WordPress section
    Then go to example.com
