Changing Multisite WordPress to a New Domain

After initially setting up a Bitnami WordPress server on Amazons EC2 .. I used Amazons Route 53 DNS to point to my new web server.

However once I set up my domain, WordPress was complaining about

with a URL of:


I realized that my site was configured to its original name, and needed to be re-configured to the new domain.

According to BitNami WordPress Multisite – BitNami documentation….

$ sudo /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/updateip --machine_hostname mydomain.com

This tool automatically updates the WordPress domain with the machine IP address at boot time. If you have customized your domain name, you should rename it, for example using the following command:

$ sudo mv /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/updateip /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/updateip.backup
