    Hello all,

    I installed a WordPress website with BoldGrid, selected a theme via Inspirations, and started editing the pages, changing text, uploading images, etc.

    Now I want to move the site to another domain. How do I go about doing this, without breaking functionality and links within the site? If there’s a tutorial or guide you can point me to, I’d be much grateful.

    Thank you very much,



    Hi David,

    Thanks for the great question about moving a WordPress/BoldGrid website to a new domain. I guess the first question is, are you moving servers as well? The process isn’t terribly different but there are a few nuances. The process itself is exactly the same as any WordPress website. Hopefully, I can guide you through it (these steps were taken directly for the WordPress Codex).

    1. Download your existing site files.
    2. Export your database – go into MySQL and export the database.
    3. Move the backed up files and database into a new folder – somewhere safe – this is your site backup.
    4. Log into the site you want to move and go to Settings > General, then change the URLs. (ie from to ) – save the settings and expect to see a 404 page.
    5. Download your site files again.
    6. Export the database again.
    7. Edit wp-config.php with the new server’s MySQL database name, username, and password.
    8. Upload the files.
    9. Import the database on the new server.

    Let us know if you need anything else or if you have any further questions.
