WordPress Website – Transfer to New Domain Step 5

Have you ever had a need to move your WordPress website to a new domain or duplicate your WordPress website (content and look) on a different domain? This series of 6 videos will take you through the steps needed to successfully transfer an existing WordPress website to a new domain. In this screencast (Step 5) we will show you how to use the search and replace script to change all the existing urls to the new domains urls. This video and the other videos that have been or will be posted were originally made for a client but I wanted to share them here since this process can be used by WordPress website owners not only to transfer a WordPress website but the process can also be used to restore the site from a backup or other similar issues. The process may need to be slightly modified depending on the circumstances but the basics will be the same.
