    Site Address (URL) – Usage, Result, and Changes, by krishammer

    As as noob, I purchased a WP theme. I have yet to create any page, however will any page I create be served from the database and appear as: http://www.domain.com/Development/whateverpage.html ?
    If the settings are:
    WordPress Address URL: http://www.domain.com/CMS/
    Site Address URL: http://www.domain.com/Development/

    If I have a bunch of old non-WP content in the root now, is there any reason I should not simply make the Site Address URL be: http://www.domain.com (root) and run the old non-WP site in parallel with the WP development site? Would it overwrite my existing index.htm, or ? Does it put a bunch of files in the Site Address URL location, or just an htaccess file for redirection?

    When I am ready to change the Site Address URL to the root: https://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL This messy article seems to suggest that I can change the Site Address URL in the WP configuration, then I simply have to edit the htaccess file. (no direct database edit if I still have access to the configuration page) Is that correct?
