    Default Moving WP files from subdomain of one url to root of another url

    I have a wp installation and files at subdomain.A.com.
    I want to move the files to an account created for B.com (domain is not yet pointed there- don't know if that's relevant though)
    B.com account already has WP installed, but nothing built out yet.
    Both are hosted at Dathorn.

    Can I just copy the files over from sub.A.com WP installation and overwrite B.com's WP files? Is there a better way to do it?

    If you're trying to duplicate the WordPress on b.com then you shouldn't install WordPress there first. You'll need to copy over all of the files, create a MySQL database, export / import the existing SQL database, create a MySQL user with permissions to the database, then edit the wp-config.php with this new MySQL user / pass.
