I’ve just purchased a new domain. I’m using Genesis for the first time with a great new theme.
I want to set up the new theme before I go live. I then want to transfer my content from the previous domain to the new.
Where do I begin? Do I need to set-up a whole new WordPress site using the new domain?
Thanks for your help.
You can do this at least 2 ways:
1. Install WordPress on the new domain and install Genesis with your new theme
Import your content from the other domain into your new site using the export/import tool
2. Install Genesis and new theme on your old domain and then move the entire site to the new domain.
You can use the WP Migrate DB plugin to change all the urls in the old DB to the new domain and server paths
Then import the DB into a new DB connected to the new domain
Upload your old files to the new domains root directory and change the DB details in the wp-config.php to the new DB details
