Okay, I referenced this briefly here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/77063 when I started this project, however I'm seeking ultimate clarification here now I think.
I installed WP on a Linux server, using the IP address. The reason being that the domain name was pointing to an old site on a Windows server, while building the new site on the Linux one.
After 2 months, 80+ posts, and a dozen pages - the DNS switch has occured, and going to the domain name in your web browser shows the new WP site.
However everything remains the same with the install, in terms of using the IP address and not the domain name. (As it should, since I have been too afraid to change anything!)
My question is this:
I'm not changing servers, or hosting companies here. I just need to know exactly what to do TO the install itself (or wherever) so that everything points to the domain name, instead of the IP address.
In the old thread, it was briefly mentioned that all I should need to do at this point is go into the Options tab, and change the two URI values to the domain name.
Is this 100% correct in terms of being ALL I have to do?
I'm sorry if I sound paranoid, but I am. LOL This is a huge client for me, and they cannot afford to have ANY downtime whatsoever, especially not due to a flub up on my part!
Thanks in advance...
