I moved a WP site from a temporary directory to the main directory. This is what I did:
Called hosting company for recommendations. Based on their instructions, I:
1. In the Settings – General area of the Dashboard, changed the Home and Site URL from the temporary url to the permanent one.
2. Copied contents of WP directory to the HTML directory
I even called multiple times and talked to different people to get a consensus. But it still broke. The website home page comes up. Some of the menu links point back to the temporary location (where the site still exists). Some links work, some don’t.
I can log into the Dashboard, sorta…it’s very slow. I can see the Dashboard home page with the counts for pages, posts etc. But I can’t access posts, or pages. It immediately locks up.
How bad did I break it? How do I fix it?
