    Today I asked HostGator to perform a domain change and move my existing WP blog to the new domain keeping all of the information intact. They did the switch and at first the blog looked right. Later in the day, the blog is displaying without a theme and I no longer have access to the admin page. The Links for the about page, as well as others are not working. Any suggestions? I have contacted Hostgator, but they have not yet responded.

    Consider using phpMyAdmin to make sure your wp_options table has the correct values in siteurl and home.

    siteurl is your WordPress address (URL) and home is your Blog Address (URL).

    And, some other info:
    http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/site-url/

    Once that's fixed, use a plugin such as http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search-and-replace/ to fix other references to the old domain.
