Moving a sub domain website to another server (4 posts)

    I created a wordpress website for someone through a sub domain. I uploaded all the files to the new server and now when I click on the links it goes back to the sub domain. How do I fix this so it goes to the domain name (ex: http://www.domain.com/contact)

    It's going to (ex: subdomain.domain.com/contact)

    Also how do I create a wordpress website that's easy to move to another server without creating a sub domain.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

  2. What you need to do is on the new server, you need to go to the database find all of the instances of the old url and replace them with the new url.

    Hi Christine,

    Not sure what you mean? Where is the database? I'm new to wordpress.
