Moving WP to a different folder on same webspace (3 posts)

    hello. i'm not very technical, but i've been following the instructions on http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress to move my site from one folder to another on my webspace. it seems to have gone okay as the new site is functioning and links are working, but i have a problem in that i can no longer log in to WP at the old address.

    i used cpanel to duplicate all the files from the old folder, which i then downloaded and uploaded to the new one, so i thought the old folder would stay functioning while i run tests ...

    however, when i try to log in to wp-login.php in the old folder, i automatically get redirected to the new one. is there some way to fix this so i can have the old site still functioning for a while ?

    could my problem be because both the old and new sites might now be associated with the same MySQL database and user ?
