comment About to migrate site to new domain
I have a couple more questions if you don't mind. The way I usually perform backups is to download the entire site folder via ftp and make a backup of the database. I assume this is fine rather than using a plugin? Regarding Point 1.4, are you saying I should navigate to the WP_Options table in MySQL, find the site_url and home_url entries and change them both to newsite.com? Lastly, would you agree with brasofilo below about Frank Buelgte's plugin not being appropriate? Thanks again.

Thanks. Regarding Point 1 - try to always set your images as relative. What I have been doing is uploading images to the WordPress site from the Admin menu where it then gives me an absolute link to the image. I thought this was the way to go about it - is there a more appropriate way?
