Hello. I know that the question might have a technical answer similar to what was described here:
but I am fishing for specific experiences related to what I am trying to do. I am currently running a site at foo.bar.org. I want to start running Joomla on this site, but there are some apps installed below the root level that need to stay in their location. Would this plan actually work.
- Install joomla at joomla.bar.org
- copy over content/scripts from their subdirectories on the old server space
- mv /home/foo.bar.org to something else and mv /home/joomla.bar.org to /home/foo.bar.org
My question is, how much of joomla would break by moving the home directory. The other scripts have some paths hard coded into them and I figure that keeping them on the same path would be a good idea, but if moving the directory would kill joomla then I will go back and look at what it would take to migrate the hard-coded scripts and then just have the subdomain point to the joomla.bar.org directory.
Am I making any sense? Thanks in advance.
