Problem moving to new domain: (1 post)

    I developed a WordPress site on:

    http://domain.com/renewables.

    It was a stand-alone version of WordPress and now the site is nearing completion, I have moved it to its own domain.

    It now resides at:

    http://newdomain.com

    I changed the DB settings in wp-config and all was fine. The homepage was on the correct URL and all other pages were still pointing to the development URL, so I employed the URL fix thus:

    From: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

    Edit theme functions.php
    update_option('siteurl','http://newdomain.com');
    update_option('home','http://newdomain.com');

    Now only the homepage works and the links throw up a 500 error.

    Any idea on how best to make this move work?

    There used to be a find and replace plug-in for the DB, but I can't find that any more.
