Preparing to move hosting servers (3 posts)

    Hi guys.

    I am hosting my blog on my own server/domain, currently in a subdirectory for "testing" themes and whatnot, before I (potentially) move it and it's entire contents to the main directory (domain.com)

    First, and foremost, is this possible? My blog is located at domain.com/testingwordpress/

    I want to have everything up and running, and then next week move it to domain.com with everything in tact.

    Furthermore, I will be changing hosting servers in the near future. My current host is not very wordpress friendly and it's taken me 8 hours to install wordpress on my site, WITH the help of hosting techsupport.

    With that being said, I do not want to run in to issues in the future with wordpress so I want to transfer my domains to a new place which I have experience with already and prefer. Question is, if my wordpress blog will make the move alright

    What issues could i potentially run in to. What steps do I need to take for this process....

    Thank you!
