Probably a typical newbie question, but I’ve searched the forums and can’t find an exact answer to this.
I have a live website running, written in MS Publisher, and while that software is fairly idiot-proof because it’s so WYSIWYG, the finished product lacks the interactiveness which blogware brings. So I’m currently playing with an installation of WordPress (v2.0.2) in a test directory in my webspace (www.mywebsite.com/wptest/), to see if it does what I want it to. But before I invest too much time on this (trialling the content from my MS Publisher site, teaching myself how to customise the page design, working out how to organise articles by page or category; working out how easy (or not) it is to run polls and forums) I wanted to check how easy it’s going to be to move from test into production. Presumably if I just try deleting all the MS Publisher files and then moving all the WordPress files from the test directory into the root directory all sorts of internal linkages are going to get broken? Is there an easy way of moving from test to production? I don’t want to have to purge my database and set up everything from scratch again. Many thanks.
