Wordpress move in one DH account

wordpress

#1

Hi, I’ve read many posts here and I just want to be sure I understand them correctly. I set up wordpress site in example.dreamhosters.com. Now I want it to move to domain mysite.org.au that I recently added to my DH account. I checked several pages and I think I should follow these instructions: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

Am I right? Is there any other/easier way? If there is faster way described in any post here, please redirect me to this post.

Many thanks for your help.

We have some custom DreamHosters directions here: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/WordPress#DreamHosters

That should help you out :slight_smile:

Thanks for your post. Seems like my site is up and working. Here are the EASY steps I did. It worked for me, not sure if it will work for other though.

[list=1]
[]Copy all the files from old site to my comp and then upload to new site
[
]Copy the database
[]Edit config file - just changed database settings and URLs
[
] Used external script (http://interconnectit.com/products/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases) for replacing all occurrences of old server URLs to new ones
[]Now the homepage worked but links were broken. I deactivated permalinks and then activated them again. That’s it.
[
]Enjoy

Hope it helps somebody else.

Justin or teammates… If I get stuck or things start to go south on a move that I am planning from outside of DH to inside of DH (it’s a wordpress site), is there a pretty easy way to reach you for support/direction on the transfer?

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Open up a ticket with us and we’ll do our best. The actual moving is scary, but once you do it a few (hundred) times, it gets easier.
