[resolved] Moving to New Sever (3 posts)

    Hi, I want to move a WP site to a new server to update plugins and WordPress itself (to make sure it's all working before doing it on the live site).

    I've read this - http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress - but it wouldn't be ideal to change the url's within the settings tab in the admin control panel of WP, as this will cause problems with the live site.

    Is there any other way to do this?

    Hope this makes sense...

    Thanks for the reply Tara, but I've gone through that already and I didn't like the fact that it said to change the urls in the settings tab on the live site before downloading the files etc...

    But I've read somewhere recently that the urls can be changed within the new database on the new server before WP is installed.
