Moving site to new domain name, forwarding from old domain name to new

Permalink
I have VPS hosting with DreamHost. I am going to move an existing site, all the contents, to a new domain name site.
Wondering what I have to do with Concrete5 in addition to the fairly easy steps I'll follow on the DreamHost side? Here's how I move the site and adopt the new domain name:

1) Set up the new domain as fully hosted, under the same user as myoldwebsite.com

2) Then access the server via FTP, and rename the folder under that user, from myoldwebsitecom to the new domain name

That will have the DreamHost system load myoldwebsite.com contents on the new domain name.

Then I'll set up myoldwebsite.com as a redirect.

Are there any other steps I have to take that's specific to the Concrete5 CMS?

thanks!
