    Hi is there anyway to restore wordpress to its original functionality after I changed domain? i.e. Changing domain from abc.com to abcd.com, I've gotten my webhost to copy the original blog folders onto the new domain but seems that there are quite alot of broken links and the CSS's not working. Is it possible for me to do an installation again to directly restore the broken links or do I have to do a manual backup of database and restore?

  2. Did you change the "home" and "site url" values?

    That should fix most problems.

    If you have full paths in posts, you'll need to do some editing. I've used the Search and Replace Plugin, but make sure you have a good backup or two of your database before you use it, and handle with care.
