Moving Joomla



I would like to set up Joomla on my site, but I currently have stuff there already. Can I set it up in a sub-directory and then after I have it just like I want it, simply move it so that it shows up on my main site (and replaces what I have there now)? (e.g., set it up on and then later make it simply be on mydomain/com. ? Will it work okay then?

Sorry if this is a pretty dumb question. :slight_smile:


You can move it, but remember two things:

  1. You’ll have to tweak any references to your old subdirectory.
  2. If you One-Click install it in a subdirectory, you’ll no longer be able to use One-Click to update it in the new directory.



Thanks, man. I appreciate it. :slight_smile:
