help migrating wordpress beta site to my live site
HELP ME PLEASE! First of all, I'm a novice at wordpress so please be nice and not too technical Smile

Second of all, I have my live website at http://logangattis.com which shows my old site design and does NOT currently have wordpress installed. The old design is an html site.

My beta site is located at http://logangattis.com/simplicity where you can see my newly designed site with complete content AND is running wordpress 3.3

I'm trying to move all the content over to logangattis.com. At first, I installed wordpress on logangattis.com (after backing up my html static site) and just copied over the folders from simplicity. That didn't work. sometimes the content would come over but without the theme css files and other times the theme would be there but not the content.

So then I tried importing/exporting the files through the wordpress management consol. It exported fine. but failed on all of the imports. Only it wouldn't tell me why so i'm not sure what the reason was for that.

So I reverted it back to my previous backup files so the way it is currently is logangattis.com is my html site and currently has no wordpress (logangattis.old does have wordpress on it) and logangattis.com/simplicity is the new site with wordpress Smile confusing i know.

Basically, I just need to pick up my beta site (logangattis.com/simplicity) and plop it down in (logangattis.com) - and get it to work hah

RE: help migrating wordpress beta site to my live site
since you already have wp installed in a sub-directory this thread should help you

there is no real reason to move your files since you already have wp set up.
