I have been working on the Edugeek Joomla package for our school website for some time now. We will soon be ready to make it live. Currently it is at www.schoolname.co.uk/newsite. We want it to be at www.schoolsite.co.uk. Basically the directory will need moving.
How can I easily do this?
I have played and I can export the database from the old site, make a new installation and import the database form the old site to the new one. Then move images and the PHP files that I manually edited over to the new location.
Is there something more easier I can do please?
Export the SQL database from "www.schoolname.co.uk/newsite"
Copy the contents of "www.schoolname.co.uk/newsite" to the web root of "www.schoolsite.co.uk"
Import your SQL database to "www.schoolsite.co.uk"
Edit your configuration.php file with the new sql database details / default locations and live site details.
So Would that mean i have to make a new database and a new installation?
No. Just copy your current site to your new host, and import the exported database to your new host.
You've listed two different domains above. Are you currently using the same host but different domains or is that a mistake?
Either way all you need to do is move the files from the newsite directory and put them in the root folder for schoolname.co.uk, the root folder will be where the index page is for this site assuming that there is already a website created for this domain.
You will not need to do anything to the database if it's on the same host. Just change the configuration.php file as described above.

Yes just as Edu-IT said move the contents of the folder newsite to the root of your website. Then edit the default locations and live site details in your configuration.php file.
