Support » Fixing WordPress » Possible To Change Database?

  • I’m working on porting a blog to WP. I’ve set up a couple of test blogs so that I can practice the data swap with dummy data.

    My question is, is there a way to change the database that WP uses after its installed?

  • Presumably, you could do that in wp-config.php

    Oh wow, that’s so simple that it eluded me. I’ll try it and let you know if I blow anything up.

    Ha ha, YES you can! This is so simple and worked perfectly. AWESOME!

    🙂 Glad you got it going.

    I spoke too soon. When I made the switch it hosed my admin area. I later figured out that I needed to change the homepage pointers, but I don’t know if that would have done it or not.

    Bottom line, I don’t think this is very easy.

    Hmm. I’ve done this several times, never had an admin area problem. Wonder if it’s something germane to your particular host/server?
