Publishing wordpress files (8 posts)

    I have been designing, building and editing a WP site at:
    http://www.s297253748.websitehome.co.uk/

    now I'm ready to "publish" and the same content should appear under:
    http://www.whassupdorch.co.uk/

    What is the best way of achieving this? Both sites are hosted by the same company but (probably) on different servers. Thanks for ideas and suggestions.

    Thanks,
    The doc you have indicated suggest that the DB is moving as well, but,
    I want to keep the same DB (I've got only this one at http://www.s297253748.websitehome.co.uk/)
    basically I'd like to keep everything as it is only that when the correct URL (http://www.whassupdorch.co.uk/) is typed the site shows as on the development site.

    The same page has directions for moving wordpress on your own server, basically giving a new domain name.

    Sorry I'm not sure I'm explaining myself correctly:

    The DB is on server A (dev URL)
    The public site is on server B (correct URL)

    I want B to display the content of DB A. (B has no DB of it's own).

    Would a simple DNS pointing do the trick?

    Thanks. I take it DNS pointing will not solve the issue?

    Can someone take the time to explain? This is all so complicated. I don't know which of the steps is the right one to take.
    Thanks.
