Moving Database (3 posts)

    I want to move my website to a new server but I'd like to have a complete copy of it on the other server before making any changes to the current/active account.

    I've copied all my files and uploaded my database but when I try to log in to http://www.newdomain.ca/wp-login.php it accepts my login info but the page then goes to http://www.olddomain.ca/wp-admin.

    Clearly I'm missing a step. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Accessing admin will always redirect you to the site_url. This is usually in the options table and can be changed in the Settings screen.

    Or it can be set by defining WP_SITEURL in wp-config.php
