[resolved] paths are incorrect (3 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I went through a subdomain to regular domain shift. In the process, I lost all my paths and plugins.

    What specific files must I access to change my paths in the PHPAdmin? It looks correct from my review, but nothing is working online.

    I appreciate your time and help, thank you.

    Download the SQL and open it in a text editor....

    Look for:

    http://subdomain.yourdomain.com

    and change it to

    http://www.yourdomain.com

    Server path:
    /your/server/path/subdomain

    Change to:
    /your/server/path/

    I think that's all you need to do.

    Did you delete the folder on the server that represented the subdomain? If so, unless you have a backup, you are out of gas.

    You shouldn't lose your databases at all; those aren't affected by a shift like that.

    Thank you for your help. With a few other changes and your suggestion, I managed to get my page links to work again. So this is awesome! :)

    Now, I just need to fix the paths to my uploads. The images and documents in my media section are not linking, and their thumbnails are blank/broken in the media library. I could probably delete and re-upload all these files, but I have a large site. There's gotta be an easier way to reroute this, but I don't know where to look yet.

    That's good to know about the database not being lost in the shift too. I was worried about that in the beginning. Good info, thank you.

    I appreciate your help.
