Silverstripe is URL independent. Its not like a system like Wordpress where you have hardcoded URLs in the database or a config file. As long as you haven't used any absolute URL's in your content area or your theme/classes, you should be fine to transfer your sites location.

As part of our development process, I regularly have one Silverstripe project in 3 or 4 locations, if it wasn't URL independant, I would have a nightmare moving between locations :s.

Hope that helps,
