    How would i go about moving a wordpress website that i built as a sub domain on my own server to a clients web host? Thanks in advance.


    With respect, I would not use the advice from @schart. I’m quite sure you have to change some things around in the backend.

    Thanks for the CC, Chris!

    Hey Dave, I actually just wrote up some basic instructions from going local to live, but it should also apply when moving to another host.

    1. Change all local URLs using ‘Velvet Blues Update URLs’ plugin
    2. Change the two URLs in Settings > General to the new domain
    3. Export database as .sql and import it onto the live server (both via phpMyAdmin)
    4. FTP all files from local to live server


    Hey guys, thanks for the help. I convinced my client to have me host it on my server and then i can just take there domain and point it to my server. Good to know for the future that i can just download the database from my server and reupload it and change the config file to match new database.
