Change URL on Bluehost. (4 posts)

    Maybe I'm just being thick but I can't seem to change the URL of my blog from 66.147.244.230/~danielzu/danielzuidijknet/ to just danielzuidijk.net. I've tried changing it through wordpress and the PHP but it either says that it isn't a valid URL or nothing happens.

    Any help? Anything at all...

    I would contact Bluehost with this issue. They are in a better position to get it resolved for you, and having worked with their customer support on behalf of a client in the past I can say that they are pretty good about sorting things out.

  3. You probably need to use a tool like http://interconnectit.com/products/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/

    With this, you can find all instances of
    66.147.244.230/~danielzu/danielzuidijknet
    and replace them with
    danielzuidijk.net

    If that doesn't work, I would follow Shaun's advice. Bluehost are extremely helpful when it comes to troubleshooting WordPress.

    Bluehost has a help article for how to change it also:

    If it changes back on its own, you have a plugin doing it and should disable them all to test.
