changing databases (2 posts)

    Long story about why I'm doing this, but I have made a clone of my blog's database -- has a different name, username, password than the original.

    It's on the same MySQL server as the original.

    I want to start running my blog out of the new database. So I have to change the three lines in wp-config.php, correct: DB-NAME, USERNAME and PASSWORD.

    My question is, is that all I have to do. If the database is truly identical, should those edits to the wp-config be all I have to do.

    I'd just try it, but you know, it's a live site. So just checking.
