Hi Can anyone help me. 

I want to move everything over one directory.
At the moment it is Mydomain.com/

I would like to move the whole site so that the path will be Mydomain.com/shop/

Moving all the files and folders is easy of course but then the file paths are wrong - I have tried changing the two paths in the database core config but this does not solve the problem.  Can anyone tell me what I have to change to make everything work again or do I have to reinstall the whole thing.

Finally found a Post that helped and thought I would put what I did here.

I moved all the directories and files to the new directory. Changed the directory path in the database Core config - there are 2 to change. then delete Cache folder in Var and hey presto it worked.

Still testing all so will let you know if any more info will help. There is a problem with some image links will see how I can fix this.
I Hopes this helps someone else.

If you have created any pages with images in them you need to redo the links for the new directory path.
