    I have to move the website to a new hosting.
    I have taken the backup of both the website and the database.

    Where do I change the settings.

    the domain name is also changing.

    You need to create a new database on your new server and edit your wp-config.php file with the new database settings

    I have 5 full blog posts showing different ways to do this on my site
