Change WP URL

Use this only if you're trying to move your WordPress install to another domain.

  1. Upload the folder change-wp-url to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Backup your database. (Either get a plugin to do this, or do it with phpMyAdmin)
  4. Use this BEFORE you move your install to the new location: this should be the last thing you do before moving
  5. Enter your new URL WITH NO TRAILING SLASH and click "Update"
  6. Once you run this, the "old" WordPress URL will stop working, so move all of your files and database to the new location (if necessary), go to your "new" URL and re-login
  7. Go to your Settings->General tab, and update the Blog Address, if necessary (only if your blog url is different from base url)
  8. Deactivate and delete this plugin
