I developed my client’s new website under a sub-directory like so: http://www.example.com/_new/ I did this so that the old website continues to function under the main URL: http://www.example.com I now have to make my website live under this URL.

Same database; different WordPress

I have a production site ‘domainA.com’, which is a multi-site WordPress installation. I have another site ‘domainB.com’.

Stepping up my game with WordPress hosting

Multiple wordpress installations that shares WordPress & Theme but with separated database

I’m searching for a solution to a architectural problem with an WordPress application I’ve made.

My […]
