I have a development site at development.shantiyoga.ca and a production site at shantiyoga.ca

Built with Django, the development site has a basic Wordpress blog under 'Journal'. When I'm ready to move the blog to the live site; is it as simple as mounting the Wordpress application to the live Website in the Webfaction control panel, or am I going to run into path issues?

Will the domain change dynamically, or did I screw up thinking I could work on some posts and switch it over to the live server with no issues?

Thanks for your time

Hi,

You'll need to mount the site to the correct domain in the control panel AND change the URL in the Wordpress Admin section or in the wp_options table of the database to reflect the new domain so that your URLs work correctly. If you make the change in the database or through the Wordpress Admin interface the posts will change dynamically for you.
