    Hi,

    I have to move my existing site to subdomanin (from domain.hr to um.domain.hr).

    Now, Ive read the documentation I just need confirmation that I got it right.

    First I have to create folder and subdomain on server (as I did)
    Second I need to log to my wordpress instalation and change the blog settings to use um.domain.hr.

    Then without opening a blog, I need to move all my files to new folder/subdomain

    Then I need to log in and update permalinks

    And finaly I need to adjust all media links in order to get my site back as it was just on subdomain?

    Can anyone confirm that this is the process I should follow?

    Thanks

    My first sentence says that I have read that, but Im not confident that I understood it right.

    So Im analysing that document and am asking for confirmation if I figured it out correctly.

    Thanks.

    The process you described above is correct but you have stopped short at Step 10. You need to also complete the other steps outlined in http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#On_Your_Existing_Server

    I have read what you posted. Without seeing what you actually did, it is difficult to say whether you are doing the work right or not. So, once you have done the actual move and if you find anything wrong or not working post the problem here with your site's link so that we can have a look at your site and tell you what to change or what to do next.

    OK.

    I think I have to get more info, I know it is not a big deal but I just do not want to mess it up.

    my site at this moment is at http://www.domain.hr, but it is in fact in http://www.domain.hr/subfolder/

    Now, I have created new subfolder um that is subdomain folder.

    Should I put in my blog new WP URL as
    http://www.um.domain.hr, and new Site URL as http://www.um.domain.hr/subfolder, and when saved just move the whole /subfolder to be subfolder of um as /um/subfolder?

    Thanks
