Hey Folks -

The following is what I do when I deploy/relocate a WP install. Was  
wondering if there is a faster or more efficient way to do it?

1) Backup www.olddomain.com
2) Download a copy of the WP install files
4) Export database via phpmyadmin
5) Open data base in text editor find and replace "olddomain" with  
6) Upload wordpress files
7) Change wp-config file if it needs it.
8) Import database
9) Drink a beer while waiting for upload :)
