I’m trying to transfer a Wordpress from a subdomain to its own domain and it’s honestly proving more difficult than I’d hoped. (Note, I’m looking here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_to_a_New_Server).
It says to use PhpMyAdmin to backup and restore to a new database, while changing the domain within the wp-config.php file. My problem is, I use the name of the user/pass that has rights to the database, but it doesn’t allow me past the most immediate log-in page when I click on PhpMyAdmin (in the MySQL database section).
Is there another user/pass I ought to be using? I used the one-click install, so I didn’t create the user when it was created.
Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. I really need this done soon.
I managed to connect to the database and back it up. I guess it took a bit for the password to update on the DH end.
I’ll be honest, though, for as simple a task as this seems (and I’m sure is), I’m finding it rather overwhelming — largely due to the fact that everything breaks in the process. I really wish there was something better than a: “Hey! Transfer is easy! Just do these conceptual things!” An straight-forward, walk-through example would be greatly appreciated, if someone knows of one.
