    hi Guys

    I would really appreciate any help I can get on the follow issue I have

    I set up a wordpress site a while ago and spent a lot of time on layout, content etc. However I let the domain name expire by mistake recently. I have all the files still up on the server, I have ftp access through the IP address, I can access Cpanel for this website, through the reseller account. I have recently purchased a new, similar domain. So can anyone tell me the easiest way to get the site, content, themes, plugins etc of the old IP address and put it onto the new domain without having to reconfig everything again

    if you can still access your admin, install duplicator plugin, free from wordpress.org. This plugin will duplicate the whole site including database,theme, images, posts, comments - well everything.
    Then download the package and installer.php and re-install on your new site.
    Easy and will only take a few minutes on a fast connection.
    i do this a lot
