DNS - Change Wordpress Site Name?

I'm about to make a site go live, but I realized that Wordpress assigned the website name as the IP address under settings. When I try to change it, the website errors out. When I've tried to change the name in the past, it gives an error... so I've tried a few tactics documentation has directed:


For the following methods:

update_option( 'siteurl', 'http://example.com' ); update_option( 'home', 'http://example.com' );  UPDATE `newprefix_usermeta` SET `meta_key` = REPLACE( `meta_key` , 'oldprefix_', 'newprefix_' ); 

I even deleted the .htaccess file. Nothing allows the site to change.

We need to make this website domain / DNS point live in a couple days, but I'm afraid if we flip the DNS pointer towards our new server, customers will receive an error instead.

Any advice would be appreciated.
