Changing Domain Names
 

Hi.  A couple of quick questions:  Our non-profit is thinking of changing domain names, but not servers.  Since we are not changing servers, just the URL, does this pose any problems for the search & replace tool?

Finally, as a temporary alternative, if we did a stealth redirect, the new URL would show when they went to the old site, however, once they logged in as a student, it would change back to the old URL, correct?

Thanks so much for the help!

You are correct on both counts- just remember the database (normally mysql) has to have the old url replaced everywhere.
