[resolved] Moving site from temp URL to its own domain, will it work? (3 posts)

    I have a WordPress installation in a subdirectory named /wordpress, I'm accesing the site through a temporary URL: http://hostingcompany.com/~myname/wordpress.

    When I tell my hosting company that I'm ready to move over to my own whatever.com and they do it, will my blog run properly still? I think I might have to go into the options and change a setting, but will I even be able to do this?

    Before you move it, you will have to change the URI settings under OPTIONS to show the NEW address. Once you change the settings, you won't be able to access it at the new address until it has been moved. I assume that the database is staying the same if you are staying within the same company ... if you are creating a new mysql database, then you will need to make sure that the wp-config.php file references the new database location as well.
