moving site with index.php

For years I've been able to move my sites by just editing the index.php file and keeping my files and theme in the subdirectory. This works great when I have multiple sites/builds under the domain. As of the past few months, this is no longer working. WP is not recognizing the index.php file, but giving a parse error indicating a syntax error in the file (syntax error does not exist).

Has WP changed this feature and we can no longer copy an edited index.php file but now have to move entire directories? If so, PLEASE change that back.

Please let me know asap!

Sorry that you never received a response to this report @CBDesign58 . It was erroneously filed under the wrong component which might be why.

This functionality hasn't change in WordPress so I suggest that if you're still having a problem to open a thread on the support forums.
