Ok so I’m going crazy haha. Hopefully you guys can help.
I’m trying to move a wordpress site i’ve built from one domain to another. I’m working with Dreamhost (who are really slow to respond and difficult to work with… not recommended)
So i’m looking for a step by step guild to completely move the installation to work on another URL. If you wish to tackle this feat, please don’t assume anything as I believed I’d gone through all the necessary steps but have been unsuccessful so far.
For reference, here’s what I did
copied all the files in my ftp to my desktop
backed up the sql database via phpmyadmin
set up the domain on my server
set up a new database on my server
uploaded the files to the new domain on my server
uploaded the sql backup on my new database
changed my config file to point to the new database
add ‘defines’ to update the urls of the wordpress installation.
I’ve ran out of time by 4 days :-/ urgh. So any help would be greatful! Thanks!!
