Moving Concrete 5 Directory

Permalink 1 user found helpful
I am looking for a checklist of steps to move a concrete installation form one directory to another. E.g. I installed it in but want it to move it to the root directory. Is this a nightmare?

404. Unable to find page.

The answer to this question should be in the DOCUMENTATION, folks. A year or so later and apparently it is still missing.

I have moved several c5 sites from a sub directory (where I like to build before officially launching the site) to the root directory when things are ready for public viewing.

Last week I built a site this way with the new, 5.5 version and the change of directories was very much simplified in not having to locate and edit the .htaccess and the site.php file - KUDOS to the c5 team!

However, this week, I am trying to move a second (completely un-associated) site from the sub directory, into the root directory and now I have a problem. Pretty URL's are turned off, cache is turned off and is cleared. Then I use FileZilla to drag sub folder contents into the root directory (as I have always done in the past, successfully) and when I load the home page it works great but as soon as I click on a link - they are all trying to redirect into the old sub directory. This includes my login =( so I am not even able to log in and update the links manually.

I have moved the site back into the sub directory and it works fine. I have also tried the swap 3 times now, but without success.

PLEASE HELP! I'm at a loss...
