I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1) Rename folders

2) Rename projects and solutions

3) Modify the solution file with text editor, and change project names and paths.

4) Modify the project files with text editor, and change the properties for RootNamespace and AssemblyName.

5) Change IISUrl property in project file (in text editor), if using IIS

<IISUrl>http://localhost/WebApplication1</IISUrl>

6) Modify class files in IDE, to change any namespaces that are explicitly set.
