Moving WordPress Site

I have moved my SweetRemedy blog to the top domain level – www.sweetremedy.org.

Good reference and tools are:

WordPress.org Codex – Moving WordPress

WordPress Search and Replace Tool

The tool just worked perfectly.

Only one caveat is that you have to change the followings in the following sequence:

  1. Update WordPress Dashboard’s [Settings] – [General]
  2. Run Search and Replace Tool
  3. Update Apache’s RootDirectory setting at /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

Changing these in different order made Settings and Tools web page invalid. The key is to keep the command-based change at the last.
