No. I’m not moving the current site to a live domain. I am pointing the DNS from an old site to a new host. The old site is at tocift.org. New site has been built using a different host on an ip address. I haven’t done it this way before. I usually do a full migration with WP all-in-one migration plugin, hence the ignorance. Sorry!!! The client didn’t want to take down the old site until the new one was up and running.
Yes, to be clear you running the migration on your ‘new’ sites database to update any URL’s using the IP to the domain name.
Yes. This is correct. I will look for the plugin you mentioned. Hopefully, they will have good documentation on what I’m doing. If not, can I ask you what to do? Sorry to be a pain.
