    Via FTP you can made a simply copy/paste and via MySQL you can use this SQL string:

    UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = replace(option_value, 'http://www.old-domain.com', 'http://www.new-domain.com') WHERE option_name = 'home' OR option_name = 'siteurl';
    
    UPDATE wp_posts SET guid = replace(guid, 'http://www.old-domain.com','http://www.new-domain.com');
    
    UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content = replace(post_content, 'http://www.old-domain.com', 'http://www.new-domain.com');

    1) I am newbie. I didn't understood. Is there any video?
    2) I forgot to mention that when i will register my new domain my company will immediately delete the old website. Means to say I have only one domain at a time.

    Sir forget the theme and widget.
    I used wordpress import plugin which import all post and pages with images. But these images are uploaded on old website. Images are just embeed on new (Testing purpose) website. I want to upload them on new website. And there is one major problem in wordpress import plugin that it doesn't show gallery.

    Sorry mate, I only registered today because I need help with a similar problem which I've posted:

    My wordpress wizard worked on an empty theme instead of an identical theme with my content. Right now, I have two identical themes - one with content but not configured, the other configured but no content.

    How do I move content into an identical theme without overwriting theme options appearance and configurations the wordpress wizard did?

    Any pointers on that, yogesh_gamer?

    I don't know about this.

    Hey folks...i have struggled with this issue many times and found the plug-in BackupBuddy. If you are looking to move a WP site from one domain to another there simply no other way to do it. They have made it super simple.

    It is premium plug in and I think it costs around $49. Worth every penny!

    You can find step-by-step instructions here:

    Good Luck Everyone!
