    Hey all ,
    I got a wordpress blog at domain1.com , and i got domain2.com point also to the same blog , Hence blog has 2 domains but its settings are on domain1.com , I changed the settings to domain2.com , The links and such changed but if i surf to domain2.com/blog for example it throws me back to domain1.com/blog . I double checked the settings , I tought it might be some .htaccess not working . I checked everything and it just moves me to the old domain . If i surf to domain2.com/blog/index.php everything works , If i surf to domain2.com/blog/ i get thrown back to domain1.com/blog .

    What can seem to be the problem ? , I cleared my cache and all and still .

    Please help !

    You cannot have the one database and two blogs from it.

    How did you understand from what i wrote that i got one database and two blogs ?

    Its the same blog , I just changed the domain that access it . I have no intention of having two diffrent blogs , Just changing the blog domain from domain1.com to domain2.com .

    Well for future REF , This was a freak accident of a hosting server . Turns out that if you park an additional domain on an existing account it happens . If you dont provide the trailing slash the server will ignore and send to the default domain account . FIXED .
