Support » Installing WordPress » 301 Redirect

  • Hello all,

    I have a question about moving my wordpress blog.

    I have had my blog hosted by wordpress.com for over a year now, and have always had it redirected to blog.mydomain.com

    I want to run it off of my own server now, under mydomain.com/blog

    I don’t want to loose all the traffic & pageranking, so I am unsure what to do.

    I was thinking I would install wordpress to both blog.mydomain.com and mydomain.com/blog, leave the wordpress.com redirect in place, and modify the htaccess file in blog.mydomain.com to redirect to mydomain.com/blog. Would this work without loosing permalinks, traffic, google ranking, etc? What are the technical issues I need to be aware of. I am a complete rookie, so please help! Thanks so much!
