I'm working on a Wordpress website in the following test environment url: www.example.com/wordpress.
Once the site is complete and everything is tested, I want to deploy to three live environments:
www.example.com/nl www.example.com/fr www.example.com/en
nl, fr and en being the languages of the website. So here is my concern: What if I just copy everything from /wordpress to /en? I know all links will be broken, and also know how to fix this (http://interconnectit.com/124/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/)
But what if I, let's say, copy everything from /wordpress to /fr and /nl and delete all the pages in order to rebuild them in the correct language? What about the page id's, and the database? Is this a "safe" way to do such a thing, or are there easier methods?
