Update 2010: How to Move WordPress to a Different Server and Web Address

December 1st, 2010 14 comments

The following video demonstrates how to move your WordPress blog from one server to another and change the web address. This is an updated video from one I did a few years ago here. This video addresses the issue of changing the web address in the database where that information is entered as serialized data. To learn more about serialized data in WordPress, just use Google, but in short, if you use a text editor to do a search & replace of the url in the database dump–like I demo in the old video–then you will have problems with text widgets not coming over and you may have problems with values in some of your plugins. Using the procedure demonstrated in this new video should solve those problems, thanks in large part to the script provided at Spectacu.la. Download that script here for use as demonstrated in the video below.

Are you moving your blog to a new server/web-address?

If you answer “Yes” to either of those questions, then you need to know the difference between patching your blog to get it working and fixing your blog so that it continues to work.
