    Hi all,

    I need to transfer my WP install (db, plugins and all) to another domain. What is the best way to do this?

    Are there any tutorials?

    Thanks

    And in the WordPress docs:

    It's a bit of a slog - good luck! One tip: never try to do it at the same time as upgrading your WordPress software. Upgrade first (if you can), make sure it all works, then move.

    When you say "transfer it to another domain" do you mean to a different site hosting company?

    If you own a domain (for example 'bluewidgets.com') and you want to use that domain with your existing blog, you can leave WP where it is and point the domain name to it using DNS....

    If you could be more clear I might be able to help you.....
