I’m moving my Wordpress install from one domain to another and planning to eventually eliminate the old domain name. Since the database is located on the old domain, I’ve been working with these two articles:
to move the content and migrate the database. Wordpress is now up and working on the new domain, but using the old domain’s mysql database. I have the database exported, but unable to import it into the new database on the new domain.
The error from phpMyAdmin is: MySQL said: Documentation
#1007 - Can’t create database ‘ausgebikenet_com_4’; database exists
That’s the database on the old domain. I know how to point WP to the new database, but unsure how to migrate the database without the conflicting database name.
If I was planning to keep the old domain, everything would be fine…but eventually I’ll let it expire, which will break things.
Any advice appreciated
