Moving Movable Type weblog to new location

apps

#1

Hi.

I’m going to be moving a Movable Type weblog from a directory on one domain to its own domain. Anybody have any experience with this? I figure I’ll just need to change the location of the site and URL in the Publishing section of the MT configuration. Any thoughts on the best way to redirect all page requests from the old URL to the new one?

Thanks!

It should be a fairly simple process to move things over. I think you’ve got the right idea. Set up the new domain first, get everything transfered over, and check it out. Then you probably want to look into mod rewrite rules to direct people to the new location. I’m really not familiair with mod rewrite to help you out, but check out the wiki and then post back with specific questions.
