This article describes how to change the URL associated with your MemberMouse license and assumes that the only thing that's changing is your URL. If you're looking to migrate your current MemberMouse site to another server in addition to changing the URL then you'll want to read the following article:
Note for members using PayPal to process transactions:
If you have existing subscriptions in PayPal, changing the IPN URL in PayPal settings does not forward IPN messages for existing subscriptions. This change will only affect new subscriptions created after the change. PayPal stores the original IPN URL in the subscription at the time of creation and doesn't provide a mechanism to alter it should the site URL change later. You will need to handle updates and cancellations for any existing subscriptions manually, or use a redirect to forward the IPN messages to the new URL. This will require your old domain to remain accessible. Contact your host or domain registrar for further assistance with redirects.
Changing the URL in WordPress
These instructions only apply to changing the URL in your MemberMouse license. Before MemberMouse is activated on the new URL, your WordPress installation will need to be directed to the new URL as well. Your WordPress install may have to be moved or copied to a new location in your site files to correspond with your new URL. For more information on the full process of changing your site URL in WordPress, see the Changing the Site URL article in the Wordpress Codex.
Changing the URL in MemberMouse
In order to change the authorized URL associated with your MemberMouse license, we recommend following these steps below:
- Put your site into maintenance mode.
- Deactivate the MemberMouse plugin.
- Log into membermouse.com and click on My Account in the menu sidebar on the right side of the page.
- In the License Management section at the top of the page, click on the Change URL button. This will make the URL field editable.
- In the Authorized URL field, enter the URL for your new WordPress site. It's important that the URL you enter matches the URL of your WordPress site exactly. The best way to ensure that you're entering in the URL correctly is to log into your WordPress site, go to the General Settings page and copy the WordPress Address (URL).
- Once you've entered in your URL, click on the button to save it. You should see a message informing you that the license was updated successfully. At this point you'll be able to activate the MemberMouse plugin on your WordPress site.
- Reactivate the MemberMouse plugin.
- Take your site out of maintenance mode.
