Point New Domain To Existing Wordpress Site


Recommended Posts

I've been googling, but have not found anything yet that seems to address my issue/concern:

I have built a site using wordpress. It's currently located under a temporary domain, meaning seceral of the links within are www.temporary.com/whatever. I am about to point the permanent URL/ actual domain name to the site, and the temporary URL will go away.

What do I have to do to the existing pages so the internal absolute paths don't all break?

I've been using https://interconnectit.com/products/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/ (version 2) to update paths in the database. You can enter the old and new paths, and the script will automatically find/replace. I've found it pretty useful when moving a site over between the development site and the live hosting.


Hope that helps?
