    Nothing much. Just change the URLs in "Options | General" and you should be good to go.

    All incoming links to your site will become dead, though -- You'd have to deal with that.

    Backing everything up before you do it is a good idea, too.

    Why don't you consider redirecting from your new add to your old add!
    otherwise you'll have to loose all the incuming links!!! :(

    By just changing the urls in settings, that would result in broken images in the media library and post. Is there any fix to that? Thanks.

    Forgot about this ... just wanted to make sure that minus what Pinoy said, I have nothing else to be aware of? Usually apps like this break on the database side by changing the folder location ...

    Just want to make sure.

    Thanks!
