[resolved] Changed Domain, Same Host but How to Switch? (5 posts)

    Hello.

    I switched domain names, but I am having trouble transferring everything over.

    I have pointed my domain to my hosting service.
    However before switching domains, I stupidly did not make the changes in my settings to switch urls.
    Therefore I cannot log-in to my old site or my new site through wordpress.

    I still have all of my wordpress files and data from my old web site when I look through my hosting server.

    I am curious as to how to transfer everything?

    I have consulted

    However, I am still confused.
    Pardon my novice technical knowledge, but any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you! I switched over to my domain.

    However, now I have another problem.
    My photos and links are broken.
    How do I fix this?

    Thank you once again. Very much appreciated.
