[resolved] Moving the WordPress site from a directory to root (8 posts)

    Hi

    I am moving a WordPress site from its specific directory ( let's say http://www.example.com/site ) to the root directory so the specific pages don't have the /site/ part in the URL (very important). The site has a lot of plugins, whether installed through WP or just plain jquery ones that I coded into the template. It also has a huge gallery.

    What kind of difficulties am I to expect when I go through with these steps?

    Any tips you can share from your experience in doing this?

    Thank you for your advice :)

    esmi - is the other point (Using a pre-existing subdirectory install) what I need? I don't understand something from there - if the initial address was example.com/wordpress why does it, under point 7, say this:

    Login to the new location. It might now be http://example.com/wordpress/wp-admin/

    /wordpress/ was the initial directory to begin with, so why is it new?

    Also, with this method, do I lose the /site/ directory from the url for the homepage, subpages etc.? It mustn't show up anywhere.

    so why is it new

    That's a typo. It should say "Login to your site". Codex page corrected.

    Thanks! So this will make every page lose the /site part from the URL, right?
