Moving WordPress from /test/ to root (2 posts)

    Recently I inherited a partially done WordPress site that was installed in a subfolder /test/. Once everything is ready we would like to either move everything to the root, or make that subfolder the domain's root.

    Is it possible to simply point the domain name to that subfolder so that becomes the root for the subfolder? Or would that break things?

    If that is not possible, I am wondering how difficult that process is to move everything up one level? There are instructions, but do things usually go smoothly?

  2. Is it possible to simply point the domain name to that subfolder so that becomes the root for the subfolder?

    Don't do that.
