    Hi!

    I have this interesting problem:

    I'm taking over another person's computer (Mac)
    and it has a blog (wordpress + php + mysql) set up (it's
    hosting the blog)
    whenever you type in "localhost", it should take you directly to the blog
    (this blog is viewed within an office network)

    After i took over this computer, i changed the computer name.
    So in "Sharing" in "System Preferences", I gave it a new name
    and even changed "OldOwner.local" to "MyName.local"

    however, the problem rises when:

    - I typed in "localhost" in the browser, it takes me to "OldOwner.local/wordpress"
    - I type in "127.0.0.1", it still takes me to "OldOwner.local/wordpress"
    - I type in "localhost/wordpress", THEN it takes me to "MyName.local/wordpress"

    The text of the blog is still there, but the images are all gone ( because the URL link to them are
    http://OldOwner.local/wordpress/wp-content/themes/default/images/image1.jpg )

    It always goes back to the OldOwner, how do I fix this problem?

    Thank you so much!
