    Moving Wordpress Site To New Domain

    I would like to move a wordpress site to a new domain. I have the wp-admin files downloaded and also the mysql database.

    The problem is when I transfer the site, I upload the wp-admin files, unzip them, and then upload the database, the site displays on the new domain, but all of the links to inner pages are to the old domain. And also the images used on the site are still using the image urls of the previous domain.

    What kind of edits do I need to make in the database file to make the image URLs and all of the links be on the new domain? If I just replace the old domain name with the new domain name in the database file and then use it, the new site just displays a blank white screen.

    Try Duplicator. It's a plugin made just for this.
