Moving WP installation from subdomain (3 posts)

    Hi there
    I am going to use WP on an existing site, and I am wondering if I can install WP in a subdomain > test & evaluate > and then later move all files to the main domain.

    Reason: I want to work on WP while the old site (not WP) is still running.

    What's the catch? wp_config? Permalinks? Many issues? Impossible?
    A better way of testing the new WP without stopping the old site?
    (I know WP pretty well, but no experience with this issue)

    Thanx
    Jesper

    I'd suggest a simple sub-folder install followed by Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory when you're ready.
