    Hi there,
    I have been testing WP on 1 domain and now I need to move it over to another.
    What is the best way to do this please?
    Thanks

    Replace occurances of your old domain with the new name in the options. Is your new domain on the same host? If so just copy the files over to the new document root. If not then download a dump of your SQL database (I'd recommend phpMyAdmin), transfer your files to the new host (make sure to update the database connection details), and load your data back in the database using phpMyAdmin.
