recommend a blog switch solution

  • 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.

    thats what I was thinking but which two values would I be changing in WP and how would I go about doing it? I’m a new to this WP thing so scuse the lame questions thanks! 🙂

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