    Plenty of tools/plugins that take care of the entire process of this.

    Wordpress??? Really ? It is fucking shit imho but lets not get into this ;-)

    If you cant find a plugin to sort you let me know. Sounds like it is using the domain/db path as the database location as opposed to server/path

    Edit: I got that back to front but you know what I mean :-)

    It will definitely be an issue with wp-config.php

    Server, username, database name and password will all need updating.

    use backupbuddy or wp-clone, they make the process really simple.

    No mention of new DB Server as tric mentions.

    I used All-In-One WP migration.

    So bloody easy download file and upload to new install and it copied everything all I had to do was activate the theme I was using.

    Thanks for the help help guys I didn’t realise it would be that easy!
