I hope this is the right place to ask and not too silly a question: here goes!
I have a little website for my business. It’s been built with WordPress on my own bit of hosted cloud.
The time has come when I want to split things up into various subdomains. I’ve successfully created the subdomains and they “work” as such. They are weddings.robertmaddock.com and funerals.robertmaddock.com.
I’m trying to use a single SQL database as that’s all I’ve got at the moment. I’ve changed the table prefixes for the new subdomains from wp_ to wedd_ and fun_ respectively.
I want to take the existing site from the root domain and copy it to the weddings.* subdomain. I’ve installed WP in the subdomain and editted the wp_config file accordingly for the existing database. I’ve then “export”ed from the old domain and “import”ed to the new.
Apart from an image or two, it apparently works. BUT although all of the pages etc have copied across, it doesn’t completely copy. For example, it’s using posts as the homepage rather than my fixed page and the template doesn’t seem to be working either.
So, the question is, what’s the best way to migrate/copy the existing site to a new subdomain whilst using the same database with different table prefixes?
Thanks in anticipation.
