migrating from IP to real url (4 posts)

    I am moving my multisite from an IP (http://69.162.148.145/~interlum/) to my real url http://www.interluminaires.com. The problem that I have right now is that whenever I type http://www.interluminaires.com I am redirected to http://69.162.148.145/~interlum/. I changed my DNS this afternoon (Thursday). Was hosted somewhere else before.

    I read about how to move my multisite but somehow there are things that are not 100% clear to me right now.

    Here is my old wp-config.php :

    define('MULTISITE', true);
    define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false);
    $base = '/~interlum/';
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', '69.162.148.145');
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/~interlum/');
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);

    I figured that

    $base = '/~interlum/';
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', '69.162.148.145');
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/~interlum/');

    need to become (am I right?)

    $base = '/';
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'http://interluminaires.com');
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/');

    what about my .htaccess right now it's set at :

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /~interlum/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]
    
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    what needs to be changed since I am moving from /~interlum to /

    what about database I know I have to change references to http://69.162.148.145 to interluminaires.com but is to http://interluminaires.com or http://www.interluminaires.com

    I know/hope someone know those answers

  2. Ugh. That's gonna suck on so many levels.

    Have you read http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_WordPress_Multisite

    You got the wp-config part right. For your .htaccess, it's RewriteBase /~interlum/ ;) Just make it RewriteBase / and that's okay.

    The search/replace on the DB may be a mother. Search for 69.162.148.145/~interlum and using the script linked in the Moving Multisite link, change that to interluminaires.com

    THEN go back and search for (but do NOT replace) ~interlum - Just find if any are left and remove them manually.

    perfect but I have many choice of tables which one should I take?

    THEN go back and search for (but do NOT replace) ~interlum - Just find if any are left and remove them manually.

    I understand why I need to do that but go back where?
    to the tool linked or in phpmyadmin?

    If all of this still does not work can I export my two blogs, start a new blog, import them, then all is back to normal?

  4. The tool linked to will search all your tables.

    The reason for the secon search is that the first one search for a larger path. Most of your URLs and settings will be handled with that. However there are some cases where the ~ portion of your URL is stored differently. Search for just the IP or just the folder is more problematic, just due to how WP stores things. The two separate searches will be safer.
