Home Forums Other Migrating WordPress from subdomain to root Re: Migrating WordPress from subdomain to root


Found the ajax problem, it is a plugin.

So to recap, the article at askwp that tells you to move, not copy index.php from your wordpress directory and then create a blank index.php in the wordpress root is wrong, at least in my installation anyway. Perhaps she is right if you are setting up from scratch a new wordpress install but if you are migrating an existing installation from a subfolder to root folder, it appears that you must copy not move as per the codex instructions.

I am all squared away, my redirects work, my site works, just the plugin is broken and I will contact that author!

Thanks to all who helped!
