I signed up with DreamHost shared unlimited hosting to migrate a couple of web sites. One of them had WordPress installed in
/wordpress/. I notice at Dreamhost all the WordPress program files are in the root of my site .
I think this will cause problems when I import my WordPress site export XML file, because it has things like
guid isPermaLink=“false”>http : //www.skierpage.com/wordpress/?page_id=2
wp:attachment_url> ![CDATA[http: // www.skierpage.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/450px-bilbao_jeff_koons_puppy.jpg]]>
It seems my choices are:
- Import the WordPress site export XML and see what happens.
- Modify the WordPress site export XML file to replace
/(only 32 references), then import.
- Using SFTP, move the WordPress program files out of my site root.
I’m biased towards 3 because it’s so confusing having all those files in the root. There are a couple of old forum posts, e.g. “Issue moving WP install to subdirectory,” that make it sound like this is supported. Will moving WordPress’s install location break the One-click install or future updates of it?
Thanks for any advice.
