Changing a sites URL via PHPmyAdmin [WordPress]

After changing the domain a site is on or making a staging site live  you’ll need to change it in the sites database too.

From the STORM dashboard, click on Websites.

Click the cog icon next to your website to manage your website.

Click on Databases

Click on the PHPmyAdmin button

This will open PHpmyADmin, click the + to the left of the database to expand the tables

Click on the WP_options table (not the +)

This will open the table, the rows you want to edit are the siteurl and home

Double click on the URL to edit it and then type in the new domain and press enter, do this for both URLs

That’s it, the URL is changed now.

The alternate way to change this is to login to the WordPress Admin area, go to Settings, the General and change the URLs at the top of the page.Please note – if you change them to https:// from http:// you will be logged out and have to log back in once you press save.
