    If you are moving your database within your server then it is very simple task. If database and URL remains the same, you can move by just copying your files and database. If database name or user changes, edit wp-config.php to have the correct values.

    You will probably need to physically change the location of your WordPress installation to move WordPress to a new domain. To move it to a new domain, follow the steps below:
    • Transfer all files from the old directory to the new directory.
    • In the WordPress admin area for the ‘old’ directory, go to Settings->General.
    • Update the ‘WordPress address’ and ‘Blog address’ to reflect the change.
    • Navigate to the new directory.
    • Upload and activate the Update URLs plugin.
    • Go to Settings->Update URLs and enter the appropriate settings to update all of your links.

    You must backup your database, whenever you upgrade or move it. Follow the steps given below to backup the database:
    • Find phpMyAdmin
    • In phpMyAdmin, click on the wordpress database
    • Then select the tables of Wordpress blog
    • Check the "Add DROP TABLE" box
    • Check the "Complete inserts" box
    • Check the "Save as File" box
    • Use a compression method if the database is large
    • Then click Go
