I'm moving WordPress. It is a move that involves a domain change.
I'm stumbling because I did it for the first time.
I did it without using the plugin.
What I did was back up the entire WordPress with ftp.
Export the database.
Upload the entire WordPress backed up to a new domain.
Create a new database and import the exported one.
Use Serch Replace DB to replace the database url with the new domain.
So far, I haven't deleted the source WordPress yet.
I was able to access the top page with the new domain, but when I click the link, I access the source page with the source url.
Also, from the management screen settings → general view, the WordPress address and site address are the url of the migration source.
The permalink setting is also the same as the migration source url.
Does this mean that the replacement with Serch Replace DB is not possible?
Or do I have to change the settings around it separately from Serch Replace DB?

Anyway, I want all the links to be post-migration links, how can I do that?
Is it possible that the link will not be the one after the migration unless the source data is deleted from the server?

Please let me know if anyone knows. I look forward to working with you.

Does the replacement of the domain with Serch Replace DB change the general settings of the management screen and the url of the permalink settings?
Would you like to understand this point alone? I look forward to working with you.

* Additional information will be added.
If i think about it, you haven't deleted the source WordPress, so it's working. I also saw the management screen logged in with "migration source domain /wp-login.php".
Since the source WordPress is working normally, I think that the general settings and permalink settings should not change.
So what is the login information on the WordPress administration screen where the migration destination domain has changed?
By the wayThis siteI am moving with reference to.

Could anyone help me? I look forward to working with you.

    The procedure is different.
    The official procedure is firmly prepared.

    Export site data from WordPress administration screen

    Back up what you have installed, such as plugins

    On the new server, create a new database and then install WordPress anew.

    Put the plug-in backed up in 2 in the same layer on FTP

    Import the file exported in 1 on the WordPress administration screen

    For the integrity of database data, etc.
    It is better to let the CMS do it instead of trying to do it yourself.
    (If you replace it yourself, it will be buggy.)
