Support » Installing WordPress » From subdomain to root (no wordpress on root)

  • Hi,

    We will migrate soon from Prestashop to WordPress.
    we have a wordpress install on a subdomain (so test.domain.com).
    We want to move from this subdomain to the root when it’s finished.
    I just realised we never installed wordpress on the root, what is the best way to do this without having too much downtime with the webshop we are running on the root.

    Can someone give me any directions?

    Thanks!

  • To move your WordPress website from your subdomain (test.domain.com) to your main domain (domain.com) on the same server, you will first need to move all of your WordPress website files to the public_html directory of your main domain.

    You will also have to change and update the website URLs to match the new domain, from test.domain.com to domain.com.

    For more detailed step-by-step instructions on how to move your website to a different location/domain on your server, you can also refer to the following article: https://wordpress.org/support/article/moving-wordpress/#moving-directories-on-your-existing-server
