    Moving WP from root to "/blog"

    Hello,

    I installed Wordpress on my domain root but now I am thinking I should use my root for more of a business "front end" and have the blog in a seperate folder. The idea being to attract more clients.

    Has anyone done this, is there anything I need to look out for when doing it? I am thinking about URLs and so on. I might have to 301 redirect them?

    Easy to do.

    You will need to update the .htaccess (2 lines if I recall) and make a couple (or 3) URL changes to the database (easy to do via phpmyadmin) and then you are done.
