So I have a subdomain that I have been developing on in preparation for launching a website. My intentions were to use the subdomain for testing and developing, as to not interfere with what the public should see on the main domain. I am ready to launch the site. How and what do I need to do in order to to keep wordpress on the subdomain for future development and still have a version show on the main domain that will not change while I make tweaks on the subdomain.
I attempted to copy all the wordpress files from the subdomain folder to the main domain folder and I noticed while the ftp was copying over the files that not all of them are able to be copied. I have been reading blogs, and forums all night but I am not understanding most of the terminology. I fear that wordpress is associated with the subdomain so it won't allow for it to work on the main domain. Any help would be appreciated.
