Old wordpress.com dashboard with my new self hosted blog (3 posts)

    Please help! I transferred my .com blog to GoDaddy for self hosting. I thought that everything went well but when I go into the dashboard it shows up as this: http://sugarandtrash.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php. I thought I was expecting it to go into this: http://sugarandtrash.com/wp-admin/index.php. With the .wordpress.com dashboard I cannot do anything that I need to be able to do, it is exactly the same as the free .com dashboard. What am I missing? Thank you.

    You're going to need to change an option in your database. Unfortunately, this isn't a terribly easy thing to do if you're new to self hosting.

    Basically, you need to get into your wordpress database, and get to your wp_options table. You need to find the "blog_home" and "site_url" fields, and change them both to "http://sugarandtrash.com/".
