I’m currently building a site on a new host while the old site is running on it’s current host provider. So, to admin it I’m going to ip address/~username. I have never done this before so I’m just trying to anticipate any problems and one of them I’m wondering about is what happens to my images once I update the DNS? Is there an outlined process for doing this? I’ve got a week to sort it out…
Awesome…I will give that a shot. I’m actually starting with a fresh install of WP and all fresh content (as per my clients request) so I’m not importing anything. This site should be easy based on your instructions but I have another client site that we’re doing the same thing but there will be hundreds of images so I’m concerned with that one.
Once you have the NEW fresh one ready to go right before you swap DNS make sure you go into WP and adjust your general site settings. Then do a replace on post_content to get all those nasty hard coded urls out of there. 🙂
