I have a self-hosted WordPress installation currently without a domain.
In a few days a domain will be pointing to this installation and I'll need to update the site URL. I'm not migrating. I'm simply changing the home/site URL from an IP-based URL to a domain-based URL.
I've already read through the codex on the matter but apart from changing the Home URL and Site URL under General Settings, the codex appears to be outlining fixes rather than any other steps additional to changing the URLs via General Settings.
- In your experience, is it a straight forward process changing from an IP-based site URL to domain-based site URL? Is it a problematic affair that should be avoided by creating a fresh hosting account entirely?
- Is anyone aware of potential problems this could create with plugins such as WooCommerce?
