I have finished my drupal site and about to launch it in the end. Now everything is in a subdirectory called www.mysite.com/drupal_test, to do that, I had to change one line in the .htaccess file:
uncomment #RewriteBase /drupal
and change to
I realised that .htaccess and some of other files in drupal are hidden files. I just blindly uploaded it and can't really see it in the ftp.
Now, I am ready to move everything to the root. I suppose I have to change that line back. But will I lose all the hidden files if I move? I can re-upload .htaccess, but there so many other hidden file that I don't know, will I lose them?
Is there anything else I should do when I move the directory or is there a better/proper way to do so rather than dragging and dropping all the files to the root?
Sorry if the question is stupid, I only have one day left to do this and I am terrified by moving drupal sites.
