  • Nothing much. Just change the URLs in “Options | General” and you should be good to go.

    All incoming links to your site will become dead, though — You’d have to deal with that.

    Backing everything up before you do it is a good idea, too.

    Why don’t you consider redirecting from your new add to your old add!
    otherwise you’ll have to loose all the incuming links!!! 🙁

    By just changing the urls in settings, that would result in broken images in the media library and post. Is there any fix to that? Thanks.

    Forgot about this … just wanted to make sure that minus what Pinoy said, I have nothing else to be aware of? Usually apps like this break on the database side by changing the folder location …

    Just want to make sure.

    Thanks!
