Site Transfer Error

    Hey guys,

    So I transfered one of my Wordpress sites from Hostgator to Hostnine and I used one of the plugins to transfer the site. The site works. However, many links are linking to the IP of the site ("http://162.159.244.121/page.html" for example) as opposed to the actual url.

    Just wondering, how can I go into phpmyadmin and replace all the "http://162.159.244.121" occurrences with "http://www.mydomain.com"
    SEMrush
    Thanks.

    You can perform a find and replace in your phpMyAdmin "if you have access to it"..

    Quick tut here:

    Make sure you check your permalinks as well.


    - WHAT plugin are you using and have you checked all your paths?

    //// Duplicator

    I use a plugin "FREE" called duplicator.. In the plugin repository.

    I rarely have a problem with it.


    //// Desktop Server

    http://serverpress.com

    An all in one solution for Wordpress users.

    Build, domain mapping - cloning, transfer.. etc.


    Best of luck.

    Export & download the database, open in Notepad++ or similar program.
    Then replace with domain name & save. Clean the database & upload the new saved database.
    Make sure you keep a copy of old database in case you do some unintentional mistake.
