    Hi all,

    I am trying to move my wp site from one domain to another. But not getting any success.

    What i did:

    using the guidelines from the webpage above i had changed the urls to the new domain, and then i moved my files from old to new domain. but everything was messed up.

    then i had to go back to the previous domain used the backup and script from above in the functions.php file to get the site back.

    i also tried to use the search and replace script but it didnt work..

    i also want to ask if i use 'velvet blues plugin' should i use it before or after changing the url from the settings page?

    Please, help me with this, by telling me what i should do to get the site running on my new domain.

    I will be very grateful.
    Any help would be highly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    There is really not much to help with instead of following the first link you posted exactly.

    What was all messed up when you did this?

    was not able to see the slider... no images... no theme... just the basic post with text and empty image holders...

    So the normal default theme with the standard 1 post and 1 page?

    If so it sounds like the database wasn't imported.

    ok. i will do it again and Post it here...!!
    as i dont remember everything now.. this is the best possible alternative...

    So what i will be doing is
    1) change both the urls from the general settings.
    2) perform a search and replace on the wp_posts table.
