I have an existing website, which I want to move to wordpress, while keeping the same domain name/ URL's used in the old version.
So far I have installed wordpress locally, and am migrating the site manually. Will the URLs be the same as they are now (locally), when going live? Aka. with "/wordpress/" in the page URL, or when linking to my PDF files "/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/" in the URL?
As this is an existing site being moved I need the URL's to stay the same as they are now. I need them to be: mydomain.no/artikler (instead of mydomain.no/wordpress/artikler)
Linking to a PDF: mydomain.no/artikkelserie/cs_eb_webartikkel_5_i_visjon_1-07.pdf (instead of mydomain.no/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/artikkelserie/cs_eb_webartikkel_5_i_visjon_1-07.pdf)
How can I avoid this?
I have tried using the plugins "add from server" and "media file manager" (creating an renaming media folders) to try and circumvent this, but to no success so far.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
