    I'm shifting my URL to go live with a site i've been working on at http://216.69.182.149/ to a http://www.newsite.com address.

    The worry i have is that i could blow the site up with archives and so forth if i'm not careful. ...

    Is this change as simple as going into options and changing the URL info web and blog addres??? that just seems Wayyyyy TOO easy. Are there any other steps?

    Thoughts, please?

    Yep, it's that simple.

    To be clear, the http://216.69.182.149/ host is staying the same . The database is therefore not moving. All I'm doing is redirecting http://www.existingsite.com from an old host to the new host that currently has http://216.69.182.149/ (my WP site and a redesigned static back end up and running.

    Will that change your answer Macmanx???

    Boy am i paranoid!

  4. Nope, that should be fine. Keep in mind that if you have phpmyadmin installed, almost everything is fixable. So, there really is nothing to worry about.
