Moved my site, but the links all point to the old site (5 posts)

    I moved my site to a new server with a new domain name. When I go to mysite.com, it redirects me to oldsite.com

    I can get to certain pages by directly navigating to them (mysite.com/contact-us). Once I'm there, my menu links are also still pointing to my old site. Some of the links in the body of pages point to the new site, but some point to the old.

    Did I do something incorrectly in transferring the database?

    Yeah, that's what I used as I guide. I was trying to figure out which step I botched. Maybe starting over would be best?

    If you don't know where you went wrong, that might be a good idea.

    WordPress says to export the database. I think I exported the tables before, and imported them into my new server's database. Is that what I'm supposed to do, or should I be exporting the entire database?
