I've updated settings with sub directories etc in wordpress before but I didn't find a conclusive answer to this on the forum. I built a WP site under the URL that 1&1 assigns at sign up (sxxx.websitehome.co.uk), now the client has moved their domain to 1&1 a month later although the site is all finished. So it now resolves correctly to the homepage but WP and all permalinks still have the old URL when clicking on any links.
- Do I simply update the URL in the wp_options table from the php Admin area?
- Does this automatically update the URL specified in the general settings?
- Will updating the permalinks also update to the new URL?
Appreciate the clarification!
