When you are designing a Concrete5 website, you may need to change the website to a different URL address, such as your Temporary URL. For example you might need to test your site on the Temp URL before going live, to ensure that it is functioning correctly. In this tutorial we will show you how to change your URL address in Concrete5 to another address, such as your temporary URL.
This tutorial is for Concrete5 versions older than 5.5.1, for newer versions this is not required, since it is no longer domain specific.
If you need help moving your Concrete5 website to us, we have a helpful tutorial that covers moving your Concrete5 website to webhosting hub.
