I'm sorry this is so long-winded but I'm pretty confused.
I moved a site to a new isp (Site 5). While we were finalizing elements of the site, we had a temporary address at our new isp: http://18.104.22.168/~concorao/
The WordPress General Settings on the new site while we were working on it were:
WordPress Address (URL): http://22.214.171.124/~concorao/
Site Address (URL): http://126.96.36.199/~concorao/
Once the site was live, we pointed the domain name "concora.org" to the new isp's DNS servers. We kept the WordPress General Settings the same.
I'm not quite clear what it is I have to do to have the addresses of the various pages be (for example) "http://concora.org/about" rather than "http://188.8.131.52/~concorao/about" and to have the links work.
I tried various combinations of changing the WordPress General settings and ended up breaking the site - links didn't work, styling was lost, and eventually broke the site totally. I ended up deleting everything with filezilla, and restoring a backup.
Additionally, Google search has our pages listed as (for example)
Once I've changed the apparent addresses of the pages to concora.org, I believe the Google search links would not be found. Is it as simple as making a new site map and resubmitting it to Google?
Or should I do either 301 or 302 redirects so that the 184.108.40.206/~concorao/ addresses point to http://concora.org?
I have the following plugins as tools that I imagine would help:
WordPress SEO plugin by Joost de Valk (which has a sitemap function)
I also have a Google Webmaster Tools Account by which I can submit a sitemap.
Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
