Blog location moved - Blog redirecting to old location (5 posts)

    Just as the title states. My old WordPress was installed onto a domain, then the domain got changed. I then re-uploaded the Blog and the database in the now domain, and the WordPress install is redirecting to the old one.
    So it was:
    http://n-tech.ismywe.com/blog/
    And now it got moved to:
    http://n-tech.ismywebsite.com/blog/
    And now it redirects to the old one. (The first link)

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    - Alz56

    Have the WordPress URL and blog URL been updated on the Settings page?

    Well.. There's the problem. I can't access the wp-admin folder, due to the redirection.
    http://n-tech.ismywebsite.com/blog/wp-admin/ redirects to http://n-tech.ismywe.com/blog/wp-admin/

    You need to update all references to the old domain in the database to ensure everything is pointing to the right place.

    I usually do this with a search & replace on a database backup file, then import the edited version, but it can be done by running queries on the db.

    Here's a guide I found linked to from the codex: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/10/01/how-to-move-wordpress-blog-to-new-domain-or-location/
