Drupal. How to Redirect Moving Site From Subfolder to Server Root

This tutorial is going to show you how to move your Drupal site from a sub-folder to the root folder, that is to make your site appear at  "www.mysite.com" instead  of  "www.mysite.com/subdirectory" in your browser.

1) Move all files from your “subdirectory” folder to the root folder (often called public_html or www). All info on how to do this should be provided by your hosting.
2) Open the .htaccessfile that is now in your root folder in any text editor and сhange:

# RewriteBase / subdirectory

to:

RewriteBase /

and save the changes;

3) In the sites/default/settings.php file you need to change:

$base_url = ‘http://www.mysite.com/ subdirectory’;  // NO trailing slash!

and save the changes;

4) If some of your images in blogposts  had full links to the domain name, subfolder etc like “/ subdirectory /file_name.extension”, the best way to update them for each image manually.
