If you want to move your WordPress site from test server to live server or from one server to another server or to change from one domain to another domain, you could use the following procedure:

  1. FTP all files from the old server to your local computer and upload all files to your new server.
  2. Login to your old cPanel and export the database
  3. Login to your new cPanel, create a new database and import the database here
  4. Open the wp-config.php file and edit the following lines:
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘user_wrdp1’);
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘user_wrdp1’);
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘password’);
  5. Open your theme’s functions.php and insert following 2 lines
    update_option(‘siteurl’,’http://www.newurl.com’); update_option(‘home’,’http://www.newurl.com’);

Sometime, when moving WordPress to another server you may encounter ” internal server error” at the new site. Remove the .htaccess file and create a new .htaccess file from .htaccess.sample
