    Or can I use these steps: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory

    Yes, I’d suggest Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory.

    If I use the second set of steps, will the URLs still show /membersonly?

    No, not with that setup. Using those steps allows you to leave your files in the /membersonly directory but outwardly display them as if you were on the root domain.

    Awesome! And just to be extra sure – this applies to all of the current pages and posts as well not just future posts, correct?

    How about any links that exist out in the world for a specific page with /membersonly in the URL? Will they be broken or redirected?

    WordPress will handle it. The cool part, really, is that the links still “technically” contain /membersonly but WordPress rewrites them as coming from the main domain. So in essence, there aren’t really redirects, WordPress is just rewriting the URLs at the last moment. Pretty neat.

    Thanks so much for your help!!

    Happy to help. Make sure to mark your post as resolved 🙂

    One more question – what about the users? Will the users be pulled from the Membersonly install or the root install?

    I think this is my last question. 😉

    The users from whichever site you’re “moving” to a sub-directory will come with it. So the users you currently have with the membersonly site will stay with it, as will all the content, etc.

    That’s what I was hoping. Thanks again!!

    I’ve hosed it up, can you help me?
