We've built a WordPress site using a temporary domain.
We're ready to change the dns on the domain to point to the new site. I went into the WordPress settings and changed the site addresses to http://operationbarnabas.net
. Then I tried to log into the Wordpress admin area and got an error because WordPress was looking for just http://operationbarnabas.net
So I went into the database, changed the siteurl and home entries back to 66.147.xxx.xxx/~yyyyy/oper
bas.net/ in the options table.
That brought the site back up, but now when I click a menu link, it adds a ~yyyy to the address.
Any ideas how to drop the extra ~yyyy? Also, when I switch the DNS on operationbarnabas.net to go to the new server, will everything work if I switch the siteurl and home to http://operationbarnabas.net?
The site has heavy traffic for us now and it would be bad to have it go down.
