Copy to new domain.

Hi there.

I want to copy my Magento install to a new domain. I've copied across the files and databases to the new domain.

How do I get it all running on this domain? It's still pointing at the old domain. Is there a way to change the config files?

Magent is very portable..

Copy files and folders and database..

Edit core_config table in your database and change any instance of the old url to the new one... in a basic single site installation there will only be the base_secure and Base_unsecire urls to changes
