I needed to move a WordPress site to another server the other day to improve performance, so I thought I’d write down the process. Here are the 7 steps that I follow every time:
- Access your domain manager and add an A Record to your DNS settings – I recommend ‘temp’. So, if your domain is example.com, you’ll add temp.example.com. To complete this step, you’ll need to know the IP address of the new server.
- Associate the new ‘temp’ version of your domain with the new server (may have to wait an hour or so for propagation to occur).
- Install WordPress on the new server to the ‘temp’ version of your domain
