    After researching the WordPress forums, and other sources that listed options for changing a domain name or URL, I did not find one that convinced me that there is one method that works in all cases.

    This method works in all cases, it just lacks the specifics on how to change your hosting account’s primary domain and how to get to phpMyAdmin since that varies depending on your hosting provider.

    Daniel Doezema offers a script that helps migrating the website to a new domain: http://dan.doezema.com/2010/04/wordpress-domain-change/

    I’ve added MU support to that script, which is available for download here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1205235/wp-change-domain.php
    For MU, after you run the script you must also update your wp-config.php and change the constant DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE to the new domain.

    NOTICE: My MU version wasn’t tested a lot, so BACKUP ALL YOU DATA before running it.
