Subdirectory to Subdomain (2 posts)

    I have a subdirectory (site.com/blogs)that I want to convert into subdomain (blogs.site.com). Here is what I did.

    - On CPanel I created a subdomain "blog" and mount the existing /blog directory as path so no need to create a new directory for the new subdomain.

    - Since WP is already installed and running on /blog, there is no need to move files.

    - I login to WP and change the WP Address and Site Address to http://blogs.site.com

    - htacess was modified and added this:
    Options +FollowSymLinks -MultiViews
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule ^blogs/(.*) http://blogs.site.com/$1 [R=301,NC]

    - Also added a 301
    Redirect 301 /blogs/ http://blogs.site.com/

    Is there something I missed or did I made something wrong? If there are other ways to convert a subdirectory to a subdomain please tell me. Thanks.

    I might be missing something, but it sounds like this is over-complicating things. You should only need to, 1) create your subdomain 2) change the URL's in the settings of your wordpress install 3) move your files over.
