Change Domain

If you plan on using a custom domain or restoring an existing site, it’s best to set the custom domain before completing the WordPress installation assistant.

If you need to change the domain after installation, follow those steps:

  1. First change the domain in the wp_options table, options home and siteurl using the pod’s database access feature.
  2. Update the domain in your PikaPods control panel.
  3. Finally, some resources, like images may still point to the old domain on pages or posts. Solution is to use a search and replace plugin to properly update those references. Otherwise images and files may keep referencing the old domain.

Adjust PHP Settings

The default upload limit is set to 64 MB. You can increase this or adjust other PHP settings by editing the uploads.ini file using SFTP.
