I seem to be getting mixed messages on this process.
I have the old website in the root. I have the new WP website I have been working on in a /directory. I am now ready to kill the old one and move the new one to the root.
Some say I have to use Backup Buddy.
Some have given me a long list of steps to follow.
Some tell me to just delete the old website and move the new one in the directory to the root. (with a bit of .htaccess work)
I like that last one!
If that is possible, do I change the GENERAL SETTINGS from
domain.com/folder to domain.com before the move?
