y Magento users try the applcaton out frst on sub-drectory or test drectory. A lot of tmes, movng an applcaton from test drectory to lve drectory can be hectc and tme-consumng. Luckly, t s relatvely easy to Magento from one drectory to another wthng the same server.

Ths procedure should work n both ways:
when you Magento from sub-drectory to as ‘http://www.mycompany.com/test/’ to ‘http://www.mycompany.com/’
or from to sub-drectory as ‘http://www.mycompany.com/’ to ‘http://www.mycompany.com/shop/’.

You don’t have to use the word ‘magento’ when you your store to sub-drectory.

After changeng URL had some trouble wth wrong path n /downloader/pearlb/pear.n, ths caused Magento Connect to nstall extenson n the “old” drectory.

dd the followng to solve ths problem:
1) Take a backup of the fle /downloader/pearlb/pear.n
2) Delete (or rename) pear.n
3) Go to Magento connect ager the settngs are resteted back to “stable”, change t to beta and press save. A new pear.n fle should now be created wth the correct path.
4) Done
