[resolved] Permalinks.....how do I make the switch? old-site/new-site (4 posts)

    Using WordPress 3.4.2 Theme is Pagelines lite

    Hello all you wonderful helpful wordpress friends, This is my first wordpress site, learning so much, thanks to all of you..

    Original site: lasvegasinfocenter.com (created in Frontpage)
    New WordPress site: lasvegasinfocenter.com/mw.lasvegasinfocenter.com (placed in a subfolder during the learning curve/re-creation, the 'mw' stands for 'my wordpress')

    I am almost ready to replace the original site with the wordpress site, but I am worried that something will go wrong, since I am not exactly sure how to do it.

    Here are my questions:
    1. Do I simply change the permalinks in the WP settings? New site will overwrite old site?
    2. Or do I go to the folders on the server and move them around there?
    3. Or, (if both of those are wrong), how do I do it?

    Thank you so much for your help.

    Kathy

    ok, thank you so much. It is much more complicated than I had hoped, but I think I am up to the task.

    I did a search before I posted the questions. But could only find things about blogs. I know WP was originally meant to be a blog, but in my case, the blog part is an afterthought and the rest of the pages are meant to be a stationary website, with comments allowed at the bottom of some, not all, pages. At least, that is what I am trying to accomplish...thus, the instructions found don't always make sense, as they focus on blog issues.

    Thank you again.
