I want to change the URL for the website I have hosted on Dreamhost.
I transferred the new domain from 123reg and set it up on Dreamhost as fully hosted. Then set up a SQL DB for the new site.
I tried FTP-ing my files from the old one to the new one, this half worked as the old site came up using the new URL, but all the links in the site pointed back the old site.
I then tried copying my sql db from the old site to the new one using putty. But this didnt help either.
I have now reverted everything back to how it was. So my old site is up and working. My new site shows the default dreamhost screen and is pointing to the DB I set up myself.
Has anyone got any experience in doing this?
