Is it possible to move an application to a subdomain without compromising the application. For example, if I have a WordPress instance installed at mydomain.com/wordpress can I simply move it to wordpress.mydomain.com/?

Also, can I simply type in the subdomain as the path for the application on the site page and it work?

Yes, you can do this, but WordPress is very particular about having its URL changed, and you will likely need to use one of these techniques to get it to use the new URL: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL. This is the one that works best for me, but that's just my preference: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL#Changing_the_URL_directly_in_the_database

Thank you for your reply Mary. Any idea if Joomla! is the same way?
