Support » Fixing WordPress » url and link issues

  • I designed our new site on the new host we were going to link our existing domain to. Now the url I used to setup the wordpress site was of course the direct server url and not the actual domain name url.

    The folder in which the wordpress installation is as follows: http://server50.hostpoint.ch/~rockpock/rockpocketgames/

    The proper url now after we changed the entries to the new host is http://www.rockpocketgames.com which is pointed at the folder above.

    Can I change either the site url or home url in the wordpress backend to make sure the links are correct with the rockpocketgames.com included and not the server50 or do I have to change something in the database?

    I looked at http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL but it’s still confusing to me.

    Should I use this?
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?YourDomain.com$
    RewriteRule ^(/)?$ blog [L]

    I would really appreciate any kind of feedback, thanks 🙂
