    Steps for site migration

    We installed 4.5.1 in a subdomain (v4.usused.com) as a testing server so we could customize before going live. What steps need to be taken when moving the code to the main domain?

    Assumptions:
    1. backing up main domain files
    2. copying subdomain files to root directory
    3. modifying the "RL_ROOT" definition in the config.inc.php file in the Includes folder
    4. modifying the "RL_URL_HOME" definition in the config.inc.php file in the Includes folder
    Are there any other steps I am missing?

    Hello Paul,

    Also you need to modify the .htaccess file if you changed it before for subdomain."RewriteBase /subdomain/" change to "RewriteBase /" if you use root directory of your webserver.
    Thank you, Curtis.

    Did you find the solution?

    Hi,

    I'm just moving my development copy to the root folder, I'm getting the same problem of too many 301 redirects when browsing folders.

    I've updated the files above and the .htaccess file to rewritebase /

    Hello Spencer,

    Did you change path into: config.inc.php file and path into: .htaccess files?
