    I've done this a few times, change to and vice versa.

    Just go to phpmyadmin, export your database and download it it your local drive.

    Open with text editor (I prefer notepad++), find/replace your original domain to your new domain. (This takes time depending on how many entries your database has.)

    Once done, upload it back to your database.
