Move a working installation to another domain
I thought I could just move a working installation to another domain:
1 export the entire database
2 search/replace domain name in the .sql file
3 import to new database
4 copy the installation folder
5 search/replace domain name in the folder files
6 upload to folder for the new domain
I get an empty screen. Nothing.
Why doesn’t this work? Is domain name somehow encoded in the database somewhere? Other issues to watch out for?
Do I really have to go through a step by step reinstall, import posts and users with build-in function and plugins, etc.?
