Moving blog to new host, I want to test using IP address, not the domain name (2 posts)

    Is there a way to copy a blog to a different host and test it before changing the DNS? It seems that WP is tightly linked to the actual domain name. I've had hacking problems and I'd like to be able to use the new IP address to test everything before changing the DNS settings.

    You should be able to.
    Copy it all over, be sure to empty /wp-content/cache and then change the values in the db.
