    Hi,

    I have a new host for http://www.leapspiral.org (/blog) . Before I change the name servers to point to the new host, I wanted to:
    1. Export my 1.5 data from current host and Import to new host

    2. Test and tweak the theme. This is a problem because I'd be testng w/ a psuedo URL, i.e., http://66.444.33.234/~leapspir

    is there somethin i can change in the database?

    since I'm no

    Ok, got it. Just needed to use this info:

    http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/site-url/

    That is, changing the home and siteurl options in the wp_options table of the wordpress database

    You can use interim addresses like http://70.666.33.123/~leapspir
