Switching Platforms ASP to Wordpress

Discussion in 'General troubleshooting' started by Mark Wallace, Jan 31, 2014.

  1. I currently have a ASP.net site built on a hosting package with Winhost and want to switch it to a wordpress. How do I load and built the wordpress site without deleting the other. I want people to continue to see the live ASP site while I'm building the wordpress solution then switch over and kill the ASP version. Any idea?

  2. The easiest way to do it would probably be to work on the WordPress install in a subdirectory (like /blog) then when you've got it tweaked the way you like, update the path in the WordPress control panel (see below) to point to root and move the files to the root.

    Settings > General > WordPress Address (URL)
    Settings > General > Site Address (URL)
