Support » Fixing WordPress » Moving from a sub domain to a parent

  • Hi

    I have a blog on .org that I have been posting on for almost ten years.

    I also purchased the parent url two years after. I don’t use the old one so want to maybe move the /blog posts to /

    However there are 2-3000 posts so I just want to know if its possible and how Google would re-index any posts

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hi,
    If you want to completely move the website from the ‘blog’ directory to the main one, the process is quite simple:
    1.Use Filezilla to move all the content from ‘blog’ to the main directory. (make sure there are no other files in the main directory, apart from the blog directory)
    2. Use the interconnectit search and replace database tool to replace the links from http://www.deanthebard.com/blog to http://www.deanthebard.com and test.

    3. All done, and when google re-indexes the site it will only see http://www.deanthebard.com and not blog.

    You can always just create an index file and .htaccess rules to overwrite the configuration in order for the site to work from the blog folder , with google .htccess rewriting your links will not have blog in them.
