  • Check out for documentation on how to move WordPress (including changing domains). After changing the address and site address, you’ll need to run a script across the database to update URL’s across the site to match the new domain (actually do that first before changing the address/site address).

    As you’re now seeing a server 500 error, take a look at: and see if one of those steps can help you access the WordPress admin to fix things.

    You may also need to clear out or reset your .htaccess/web.config/nginx directives for your site to make sure the server redirects requests correctly. Check with your hosting for more info/support.
