Oh! what a tangled web we weave, when under the wrong URL a Wordpress theme we leave.
A month ago I installed a Wordpress shopping cart theme in a Godaddy web hosting account under the domain example.us. The WP theme IS the website. Everything went well.
I configured the theme, added some product with the images. 12 hours of work.
Then a couple of days ago the client bought the lost .com version of his domain back from a squatter and wanted me to move the site to example.com. My problem is that I wasn't smarte enough and listened to a Godaddy tech guy who gave me advice on how to simplify things-- and that has caused huge problems. I 301 redirected example.us to example.com, but the WP theme hosted at Godaddy is still running under the URL example.us. Obviously, I can't let this continue, but I don't know how to get out of the mess.
The example.com registrar is not Godaddy. Its nameservers are set to Godaddy's, where the site is hosted under example.com.
The Godaddy web hosting account for example.us now only serves to execute the 301 redirect. But in the web hosting account for example.com the WP theme still has the URL example.us.
The redirect works and the site itself works properly at this time.
What is the best way to get the WP theme into the example.com web hosting account at Godaddy? I hope I'm not facing a complete re-install and re-doing the whole enchilada over again.
