How to restore WordPress to a different domain

In this podcast I will show you how to restore a WordPress site that we’ve backed up in the previous show. In particular, we will restore a remote website to our local system first, and because it’s a rather tricky process we’ll also install it on another remote host.

For both examples the domain will change, and for WordPress to work correctly after the migration we need to tweak a few values (both in the wp-config.php file and in the database).

All will be revealed in these exciting 30 minutes – enjoy!
