    hey, I currently have a blog using textpattern, it resides at a subdomain blog.mydomain.com

    now I'd love to import my textpattern based blog into the new wordpress 2.0 but still use the subdomain I've created.

    is there any trouble installling wordpress alongside textpattern importing the data from TP then killing the TP files?

    any advice would be great.

    thanks

    Just to make it clean... I'd set up a subdomain like
    experiment.mydomain.com and after the successfull import and setup, you still can delete the old files, move the WP files to the blog subdomain (+changing 2 values in the DB) and you are done.
    But maybe others have better ideas.

    The values are site_url and home in the options table. Full tutorial here:
