Pointing Domain From Old Site to WordPress index.php
I done a lot of research and I am stumped. I am a wp intermediate user…lol. I have a client with a old joomla site and a new wordpress site all wrapped up in one big pretty folder.
I copied the info from her Joomla site into her new wp site. I moved her old joomla site into a folder labeled OLDSITE on her server. It was in subfolder labeled LIVE.
Nows here the tricky part:
-The WP files are in the public_html folder.
-She has a index.html, a index.php and a index2.php. (wp is index +joomla is index2)
-I can login into WP at HERDOMAIN.COM/WP_ADMIN.
-When I go to HERDOMAIN.COM it points to HERDOMAIN.COM/LIVE which is the old site. When I go to her website after moving the old site i get an expected 404 error page. So I go to point the domain back (HERDOMAIN.COM/LIVE) to her regular domain (HERDOMAIN.COM) and it is still pointing to the index.html. No redirects anywhere. So I move the index.html to the old folder and suddenly I cannot log-in HEDOMAIN.COM/WP_ADMIN anymore. -So I move the file back and check the index.html file and see this:
<META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT=”0; URL=/live”>
I tried to adjust it and not working on my end.
-Did some research and also checked the htaccess and tried this to no avail:
RewriteRule ^index\.html?$ / [NC,R,L]
Nothing is working and I am kind of weary of moving the WP site into a new folder then losing access to her content she needs for her employer.
Thanks in advance for your help!
