    I have a domain name of “directory.websitename.com” and I want to change it to “othername.websitename.com”

    I am using directorypress.

    What is the migration process to do that? Are there any faq’s out there that show you how to do that?

    Any help is appreciated!

    hi Mario

    The only settings that would need to changed in DP are under the generals etup -> pages and images tab.

    The rest are all wordpress.

    I was looking at this subject yesterday as it happens, migrating to another server with same domain is a breeze ( famous last words ), but changing the domain completely and moving with an established WP site is a bit more difficult.

    Came across this plugin, need to try it later.
