Сan I migrate a site hosted on the same domain as the target site?
There are two ways to deal with the above issue:
1. You can migrate to the subfolder under the same domain. To reflect that – the source site (you want to migrate from) is http://www.example.com and the target site (you want to migrate to) – http://www.example.com/new_site.
2. If you’re considering your current site http://www.example.com moving on the same domain – you can do it in two phases:
a) migrate your content to our testsite (more info) and request the Dump file after migration;
b) once finished, install a new platform on your http://www.example.com domain and restore your data from the Dump file.
