Renaming Staging sub domain site to Live Site


#1

I started staging my site on example.stagingarea.com and i need to rename that instance now to example .com

I am in EasyEngine 4. Is there a script, walkthrough or easy way EE4 is helping us do this?

For example:
IP is 1.1.1.1
example.stagingarea.com is where i have been staging this site.
I would like to rename this to example .com

Can someone please help me find a link where I can walk through this and get this done.

Thank you!

I would export staging db via wp-cli, tar its htdocs, create new site, then replace new site’s htdocs with staging and then finally wp-cli import the staging db.

It sounds like a lot of work but it’s not once you think about it. You should familiarize yourself with shell commands.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will give that a shot and report that.
