Migrate WordPress site to different AWS account (Part 5 Final – Map the domain to the newly migrated server & testify the result)
January 19, 2019
It is time to redirect the domain name mapping to the newly migrated servers.
Map the domain to the new servers (new ELB):
To map domain to the new ELB gateway,
1). Log onto the old AWS account -> “Route 53” -> “Hosted zones”
2). Find the “A” records and update the Alias Target value to the new ELB gateway
3). Save and wait for a few seconds to take the effect -> DONE!!!
To verify if the domain is now actually pointing to the new servers:
We can simply ping the domain and check its returning IP address to see if it is pointing to the new ELB or not:
1). Find the DNS name of the new ELB
2). Open the command prompt and ping the new ELB DNS name & the registered domain:
Expecting to get the same IP address as shown (It is pointing to the new ELB!!!)
THIS IS IT!!! Migration of the servers is now completed! 🙂
