    Hi there!

    I have a separate WP installation on another domain and have since transferred it to a new server with a new URL.

    We have changed the DB name inside the old DB and find and replaced the URLS to show the new url however it still references the old site.

    Is there something we may have missed? :)

    Many links are stored in the database in 'serialized' strings. A simple search-and-replace will not work on these links. Here is an article with the steps I use to migrate a site:
