    Hi there mates, i have a site working Ok on Joomla instaled on root/public html, because of the much more friendly seo and interface of WP i decided to quit joomla and go to WP.

    I dind´t erase or made any change on Joomla Instalation and instaled WP on public_html/wp and set up all the site and articles, now the WP site is ready and my doubt is ...

    ==> Will it work if i erase Joomla and using ftp just transfer the content of WP from public_html/wp to public_html ??
    or
    ==> Do i have to erase joomla and reinstal WP on public_html ?

    Tks in advance and regards from brazil.

    Hi mate, thanks for your reply but the wp site is ready and instaled, i used this plugin but i instaled the wp not on the root public_html .... i´ve migrated the content but instaled the WP on public_html/wp ....
    My only doubt is if the wp will work if i get the wp instaled to public_html/wp and move it to public_html

    It will not work. Yoou have to do something first.

    Go to your WordPress dashboard - Setting - General

    Change
    WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) from youdomain.com/wp to yourdomain.com

    After that your blog will no longer work. Now transferr your blog to the public_html and you are golden. Just follow this steps ;)
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2
