Changing WordPress URL

I’ve had to set up a blog and used the WordPress engine. I set up a trial site and then had to change the URL for going live. To do this you have to update two fields in the xxxpw_options table. Open MySQL Query Browser and run this command.

UPDATE xxxpw_options SET option_value = ‘http://<newurl>&#8217; WHERE option_value=’http://<oldurl>&#8217;;
