    I'm going to transfer my site from Godaddy to Dreamhost dedicated server. I backed up my files & DB. *One more important point is, in Godaddy I had sub-dir installation but now I would like to have subdomain installation.
    Can anyone please explain about the farther procedure (step by step) for a successful transfer?
    Thanks

  2. The transfer, so long as the domain doesn't change, is just a pick up and drop of all your files and DBs.

    The subfolder -> subdomain is ...

    @Ipstenu
    I tried the subfolder -> subdomain method
    but after that my main blog is not opening, my home page redirects me to a random blog under my network and more over that blog is also broken, like the static files weren't loading properly. I tried to open my dashboard,but unable to open.

    What to do?

    One more question is, what would happen to my old subsites, those are having sub-directory structure?

  4. Did you chaneg your .htaccess as well?

    Ya i did. I did everything they mentioned on that codex.

  6. Which isn't much.

    You may need to go through your database and look at how it calls the sites, to manually fix them.
