    Hi forum

    We have an existing wordpress blog on our own servers. We've purchased a new domain and want to change the existing url to the new url. We want to do this without setting a new folder and exporting items over. Can anyone help with the best suggestion to do this?

    it doesn't seem to work. here is the site http://www.emkwan.com we want to change the url to http://www.avorah.com that's it. but when using the method above we didn't get emkwan.com loading the avorah.com url. It just loaded avorah.com which currently has only the same theme and thats it! :-(

    Can you log in admin if so you can change urls to your new domain name in Settings>>>>>General but you will need set the new domain name to point to where you installed wordpress on server.

    If you have any content then you will need change all urls in database as well you find a article on my website How to change urls in database

    Hi all... I'm bringing up this post again as I'm completely stuck. Here is the situation:

    i have an existing blog. http://www.emkwan.com I have purchased a new domain http://www.avorah.com What I want to do is change the url of the existing blog (emkwan.com) to avorah.com. So far Iv been told best is to install new blog from scratch. What I can't seem to understand is why I need to do all that just to change the URL. Can anyone please guide me through a step by step method.

    Many thanks
