I was playing around with wordpress in another domain using a subdomain. I have started another account and domain with wordpress and I would like to import the site I created from the subdomain. Is there a way to import into wordpress?

    You sure can, check out this link -

    You should be able to "Moving Directories On Your Existing Server."

    If that doesn't work, just perform a full move as outlined here -

    I would use a backup and restore called UpdraftPlus Backup and Restoration for WordPress


    BackWPup Free - WordPress Backup Plugin

    Also bitnami at has a great free local install of wordpress for development if needed.

    to move the site, you'll need to have the same theme and plugins installed on the new site.
    then on the existing site to to the admin - Tools -export and export all data into an xml file.
    then go to your new site and goto admin - tools - import and import the said xml file.
