    Hi guys,

    I just bought this template, and am very impressed by how easy it is to setup and use.

    My current situation is as follows:

    I currently have my live production site running on the root folder on my server, therefore to get to it, I would type http://<domain&gt; and I get the first page

    I installed the wordpress and Flashlight theme on a subfolder, at http://<domain>/wp/Wordpress since I don’t want to take my live site down while I rebuild it on the new template.

    My question is, before I invest a ton of time rebuilding the site on the folder structure above. Once I am finished building my new site at http://<domain>/wp/Wordpress, what will I need to do to move this to the root folder? Or is this even possible.

    I know I can point the main domain to the new subfolders, but prefer to keep the strucure clean since I won’t need the old files any more.

    Or, alternatively, I am sure I am not the first person to need this, so, is there a recommended approch I should take to make it easy for me to switch from the old site to the new site?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hey,

    I’d just copy the wp files to the main index folder (“new root”) and then use a plugin like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search-and-replace/ to batch replace all occurences of http://<domain>/wp/Wordpress with http://<domain&gt; – now all posts/permalinks, etc. should work again.

    Thanks!

    I will build my new site with confidence, and will promote it to live once I am satisfied with it.
