Moving WP (2 posts)

    I read the docs about moving WP from one dir to another, but I wonder if another method will work.

    I want to move from whatever.com/blog to whatever.com

    Can't I just do a new clean install on whatever.com

    then go to whatever.com/blog and do an export from the tools menu

    then change the wp-config file to match the proper data base on the new installation, log in and do an import on the new installation.

    Seems that would work.. what do you think?

    Yes, you can but you would have set up all of your theme, custom menus and plugins again.
