Project Uptime : Progress Report 7 : Putting the finishing touches

We finally come to one of the last posts of Project Uptime. Now that all the components have been setup, I finally copied the wordpress directory from my old server to the new one. The only changes, I had to make after copying the files were

  1. Configure Apache to have the wordpress folder as the default directory. I did this by changing the DocumentRoot option in the vhost
  2. Changed the permissions on the wordpress directories (so that wordpress can make rewrite rule changes on the fly)

[code]sudo chmod -v 664 $WORDPRESS_DIRECTORY/.htaccess

sudo chmod 755 $WORDPRESS_DIRECTORY/wp-content [/code]
