Changing of WordPress site URL (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I want to move my website to a new URL and not sure how to do it. Would it be worth just copying and pasting everything on my old site across to prevent any issues occurring? I want to keep all my content on the site, but have a different URL. Is there an easier method?

    Thanks,
    Pete

    It is not as simple as just copying everything because some URLs and paths are stored in the database in serialized strings. Special care must be used to convert these strings properly.

    Here is an article with the steps I use to migrate (copy) a site: http://wordpress.mcdspot.com/2012/08/22/migrating-a-wordpress-site-step-by-step/
