Support » Fixing WordPress » How do I move Wodpress site off subdirectory to domain root?

  • Hello,

    I am new to wordpress but have years of experience with Linux, Servers, Joomla, etc.

    I have a site which is at http://domain.com/blog

    I want to move the entire site to http://domain.com

    In the WordPress >Admin the WordPress location is
    http://domain.com/blog

    and the Site URL is http://domain.com/blog

    The only thing on this domain is the wordpress site.

    My questions are:

    1.) Is moving the entire wordpress site to http://domain.com as simple as changing the Site URL address setting in the admin to http://domain.com , and I don’t have to change any file locations?

    2.) Does a config_file.php have to be modified, also?

    3.) Is there a handy way to make an image backup of the entire wordpress site ( i.e. a module that does restorable backups that is recommended).

    I really appreciate your help for this – am helping a friend with her site.

    Thanks,

    Eddie
