Making a copy of existing site, and moving it to different tomain (5 posts)

    I have an existing site, http://www.giannisbrickpizza.com and I want to make a copy of this site, themes, menus, and the like onto another website http://www.giannisnypizza.com. I tried to create a fresh installation of wordpress on the new domain, and then copy the wp-content folder, and import from the old site, but it doesn't work completely. The new site is installed at http://www.giannisnypizza.com/wordpress and it seems that the menu isn't working properly. I don't know what I did wrong, but I would like to know the best way to do this.

    Thanks,
    Zach

    You need to update the site url and home. Here's a link to that:

    Try resetting your permalinks and see if that helps!
