I've been single user WP for some time, now getting into the network version, for some pro bono work I'm doing for a voluntary organisation.
I'm moving their existing website onto wordpress, and onto a new host, and going the network route as they would like two or three subsites for specific purposes, and one to be members only.
The main complication is that there is huge amount of content to move over, and so I've set up network WP on my host to load content, in advance of getting the domain moved across to the new host.
So I've got it all running fine, and it's available at http://xx.xx.xx.xx./acme.org.uk (where xx.xx.xx.xx.) is an IP address. The intention being that when the content is ready the domain is transferred across to my host, and I can do away with xx.xx.xx.xx and be http://www.acme.org.uk
One issue I've come across so far in looking ahead to the transfer is that unlike single WP, I can't just change the url of the site in wpadmin, and have to do this in the database. I've little experience of sql other than a very rare peek into Mysql or myphpadmin, so I'm looking for re-assurance that this isn't too difficult.
And all the internal links in the content points to xxx.xxx.xx.xx, so I need to change that. And again, I believe that can be done fairly easily in sql, or via a plugin.
Looking for pointers and reassurance my friends, before a whole load of data transfer this weekend! The domain move will be about 7 days away if the above aren't big issues...
Any advice appreciated!
