    Hey @macgig,

    You might dig this article:

    https://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

    In general, there are a few steps:

    1. Moving files (if necessary)
    2. Updating database settings
    3. Updating database urls
    4. If needed, fixing hard-coded urls in a theme (you shouldn’t have to do this).

    You can follow some of the steps in the above article to do this in a more manual fashion. There are also backup and restore plugins and services that would allow you to backup the first site and restore to a new URL.

    Once you have got your site running on the new URL, I’d recommend using a tool like Better Search Replace to search and replace any of the old url occurrences with the new URL.

    I hope that helps!
