Moving WordPress To A New Location On The Same Server

If you need help in moving your WordPress blog to another location within your server then this tutorial is for you. If you need something else related to this then you may request that article by replying here.

  • Create new directory.
  • Copy all your WordPress core file to that directory.
  • WordPress core files mean all those files in root directory of your WordPress blog.
  • Login to your WordPress blog.
  • Move to Dashboard.
  • Move to Settings > General panel.
  • In the text box: WordPress address URL,  replace the address to the new location of your main WordPress directory.
  • In the text box: Site address URL, change the address to the new location.
  • Click Save but don’t try to open your blog now.
  • Now move all your core WordPress files including sub-directories to new location.
  • If you use Permalinks, move to the Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks panel and update your Permalink structure to your.htaccess file.
  • Remember: .htaccess file lies in the root directory of your WordPress blog.
  • Existing image/media links uploaded media will refer to the old folder and must be updated with the new location. Do this with the Velvet Blues Update URLs plugin, or with a search and replace tool, or do it manually in your SQL database if can. If you feel any problem then feel free to ask me here.
  • Update ‘store uploads folder’ under Settings > Media or all your new uploads will continue to go into the old folder.
  • Update your menus link from Appearance > Menus.
