[Resolved] move old blog to a new site domain and folder
I’m renaming my site, with a brand new domain and website setup. I’d like to move the blog ( which is not the entire site, just the blog part) from my current site to the new site, but with a couple of ‘issues’:
I (THINK I) want to rename the wordpress folder for the new site. Will this be an issue getting all the material (3-4 years worth) to sync?
From what I understand, renaming the database prefixes etc in a new setup is a good security measure, so I’d like to do this. Will this cause me all kinds of grief in moving the blog over to the new site?
I’m aiming to phase the new site in and the old site out, so as not to lose too much search engine juice along the way. I’m not sure if I move the blog over and have it installed on both domains (both are addon domains on my main lunarpages account) whether that’ll cause the server any issues, etc?
Should I move the whole w/p section all at once? Or can I set up a new w/p folder on the new site, build a bunch of pages for it, then when I’m ready to move the blog from the old one, just somehow extract the blog posts and dump them onto the new site’s w/d folder?
Am I foolin’ myself that I can do all this? 🙂
Thanks so much.
