moving wordpress

I have some instructions for moving my site and going to do it this weekend… I want to move chasingwellness.com to test.chasingwellness.com… I want to use the holder theme website for chasingwellness.com and wanted to see if anyone had any tips on this move. I am using wordpress multisite and am nervous about doing this.

    Hiya Sharena,

    You’re moving the multi-site install to a subdomain then?

    That’s not something we generally advise folks to do. If you’re goal is to use the holder theme while continuing active development there are other ways to do it. I’d suggest using a theme switcher such as:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/theme-test-drive/

    Still, if you’re wanting to move the site to a subdomain it’s doable, just make sure you have good backups of everything ahead of time!

    Thanks Mason,

    I was just about to do this. Maybe it would be better for me to leave the site and create a subdirectory with the holder theme. I would like to be able to engage users while tweaking the main site. I realized there are a lot of features I want to add and I don’t want to rush it just to get it out there.

    What do you think?

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
