    Hi,
    I have a site (.net) that works and has traffic and I would like to rebuild it using WP.

    www.domA.com

    I built more than 30 wp blogs already so I know how to configure etc, but I always used a new domain.
    I want to build the blog in a subdirectory : www.otherDom.com/subdir
    write 301 redirects in htaccess for the old urls
    and then make the domain point to the new blog

    I added an addon domain to the root URL that points to: www.otherDom.com/subdir
    so now www.domA.com points to the new blog

    but....

    when i try login in WP in www.domA.com, I get
    www.otherDom.com/subdir/wp-admin/....
    instead of
    www.domA.com/wp-admin/....

    what else should I change?

    Regards
    Claudia

    I'm not sure what your trying to do but if you go to your database through phpmyadmin you will see on wp_option tables theres two fields that have the url of the blog.

    You gotta change that to the new location
