Moving to a new server and domain (2 posts)

    I know there are tutorials on this, but they all seem a little pointless. When moving, surely you can backup everything on to you mac/pc. Then in the wordpress control panel, change the domain name which will change the database for you and download everything again (under different names) and upload to the new server with new domain? Would this work?

    In theory it might. Just don't panic when after changing the two URI values in Options and saving it... you get a nice big 404 :)
    You could also just upload the backed up version and when in place (before trying to see your blog!!!) change the two values directly in the DB:
