Support » Fixing WordPress » Transfer second wordpress site to domain.com/secondsite

  • Hello,

    I have a small WP-based e-store, that has two languages. Technically, the page has two different WP installs for two different languages – so the english version sits on eng.domain.com

    Is there a way I can transfer that WP install to domain.com/eng ?

    Thank You,
    Jaan-Matti

  • Yes it is possible. Refer to the following document: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory

    Thank You for the link. I have a question about it though – the codex tells me to move my WP install to domain.com/eng , by changing the site URL, wordpress URL and by “copying the index.php and htaccess to the root folder”. But I already have an index.php and htacess file in the root folder, because the root has its own WP install (www.wordpress-site.com/wp-site-in-english) Should I somehow merge the two index.php files?

    By root folder the documentation means the root folder of the new installation, in your case the eng directory.

    Thanks for the answer. But I already have the index.php and htaccess in the /eng directory, because they are in the WP folder by default.

    I guess my problem right now is that I have successfully transferred the site to /eng, but the permalinks are messed up. When I click on the links in the menu, the page isnt there. It’s like somehow the permalinks havent updated.

    Hi,

    Try:

    1. disabling and re-enabling the permalinks (in case something is wrong with the htaccess or so)

    2. Give us the URL of your website so we can see what is exactly happening.

    Hi,

    Thanks, by trying to disable the permalink settings I noticed, that on the /en install, my .htaccess file wasnt writable, so that was the problem 🙂

    Thanks again,
    Jaan-Matti
