We have a client who has theirsite.com set up. They decided they would rather have theirsite.org. Both domains are registered to a single Dreamhost account. Is there a way to “move” the Wordpress site from theirsite.com to theirsite.org without having the site be down for any length of time?
We are referring to the Wordpress Codex instructions for moving a site and would plan to create a theirsite.org folder to move the site into. Our concern is that an earlier effort resulted in both addresses being down.
In addition, we are in the process of mirroring the site. It’s finally beginning to show up but when you click to go to another page, it’s sending you back to .com. If the mirroring settles down, might that be all we really need to do? Or should we also update the Wordpress database? Or none of the above?
Apologies, I know this is similar to several posts within the forum and though many sort of pointed us in the right direction, none really gave us an answer we were completely comfortable with. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
