I can do that - but reading the instructions in the above link (Moving WordPress) it reads as if I want to move the physical location of the files as well as change the website name, namely steps 4 & 5 where I change the name of the WordPress address and Blog address in the Admin panel.
I just want to keep the same URI but have it point to a different physical location. My IP gives me that capability. i.e., associate a directory with a website. What I want to do is copy the files to the new destination, then point the website to the new location.
I see that the physical path is one of the options in the wp_options table but was looking for a resource to identify other changes.
I was hoping to do something like copy all of the files to the new destination and then update the physical location in wp-options. Voila - new location.
I take it that it's not as simple as that?
Re: table prefix - I just wanted to make it something other than the installed default. No big deal.
