Changing the URL without changing the file location
I’ve looked around for an answer to this but while there are plenty of topics and docs on moving WP, they don’t seem to cover what I need to do, which is simpler than most. Most docs assume the files are moving, and/or that the URLs are moving from root to subdomain. In my case I want to change the URLs from subdomain to root domain and I don’t want to move the files from their current subdirectory. I’m running the Thesis metatheme that might perhaps have some special considerations.
I installed WordPress in a subdirectory (../web) and set it up so that it could be accessed via http://web.mydomain.com
I now want to change it so that it is accessed via http://mydomain.com – obviously I can look after the DNS requirements.
Is there a simple way of achieving this? Which of the many “moving WordPress” documents apply, and which part of them?
Any assistance gratefully received.
Many thanks in advance,
