We are hosting our WP installation internally and will plan to go live this Saturday. It is a multisite subdirectories settings. Our current website is under http:// and not https:// but the new WP will be a secure server hosting.
I have a few questions:
1. Right now the link is ww2 and of course will be swapped over to www. Do I just need to change ww2 reference on wp-config or do I also need to do it on the wp_options table? This is the code we have referencing ww2 on the wp-config:
define( ‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘ww2.websitenamehere.com’ );
We tried to test out changing the ww2 to http://www.websitenamehere.com as a test but when we changed that I can’t access the My Sites > Network Admin dashboard anymore.
2. On the dashboard My Sites > Network Admin > Sites. The base domain Siteurl and Home are grayed out so I can’t make any changes to it, but for the subsites I can easily changed the Site Address (URL) ww2 reference to the correct http://www.websitenamehere.com/sub1. Is there a reason why I can’t change the base url through the dashboard?
3. I’ve downloaded Better Search Replace plugins because it seems like on the day we make the website live, I’d need to use that plugins to search for reference of ww2 onto the wp_options, wp_site, wp_sitemeta, wp_blogs, and wp_#_options, where # is the site id for all the subsites I’ve created. Is this correct?
Let me know if there are any steps we’d need to take in order to have a successful launch this weekend.
