To move site to a different domain name

I have installed Discourse on a DigitalOcean droplet, and configured the plugins also. There are no actual users but I have added a lot of sample/dummy users and data for a kickstart.

Essentially it’s almost ready to go. But just before, I need to change its domain name. It’s a completely different domain name, not a different subdomain. I am wondering what would be best way to proceed on this. Can somebody guide on it ?


I recently followed the guide @pfaffman posted above to change the URL on a live site. For an in-place change (i.e. not spinning up a second instance on another server with the new domain name), this is probably the fastest way to do it.
