    Move the location of Edugeek Joomla

    Hello

    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?

    Thanks

    Wouldn't it be easier to create a 301 redirect so http://www.schoolname.co.uk goes to http://www.schoolname.co.uk/newsite? You could rename the directory to something more suitable.

    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.

    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.

    Just double checking before I move a site from the subfolder its been created from.

    I just need to move all files from

    www.site.com/joomlatest

    to

    www.site.com

    and then just edit configuration.php to change path names

    Yes?

    regards

    Yes. Your site should then work in the new location. If you've put any links on the site, in content, then you will need to change these too.
